All our boats have fully functioning kitchens and come with all the equipment you need to prepare a 3 course meal, for all on board. It’s up to you whether you want to dine aboard and enjoy the sunset from your deck, or discover the cuisine of the destination in a local restaurant.
From 3 nights to several weeks, all durations are possible ! Our suggested itineraries give you cruising distances & times for an average speed of no more than 6-8km/hr.
Generally speaking, cruising for 4-5 hours a day will enable you to cover plenty of ground, while still being able to explore the towns and villages enroute ! And if you would like to plan your own trip, feel free!
All of the waterways we travel are very easy to navigate. Plus, before you leave, our base staff will go over your route very carefully with you, so your only worries along the way will be which town will have the best breakfast!
Going through locks is a fun part of the vacation and gives everyone a chance to be involved. Once you’ve been through your first lock you’ll see they are easy to do. Most locks are automatic and operated by a lock-keeper who will be happy to help you.
Boating means freedom! Generally, you can moor anywhere you want to along the public canals or riverways. There are some restricted and private areas, but in most cruising regions, finding free moorings is not a problem. You may however, prefer to moor in a public or private marina which, for a fee, offer facilities such as electric hook-ups, water refill, showers, snacks…
