Why Choose Le Boat?

Never been on a boating holiday?

Be the captain of your own boat. No licence or experience is required. It's that simple! You come aboard and we show you everything you need to know during a briefing and demonstration before your canal cruise. Then you're off enjoying your boating holiday. It's like driving a car, but much easier and more relaxing! To get a taste why not book a short staycation, and begin by exploring the stunning waterways here in the UK.
