It’s now possible to book skippered boat party trips from Union Wharf marina. This means that your party can hire a small narrowboat complete with a skipper or captain. None of your party has to worry about taking responsibility for the driving, and everyone can join in with the celebrations.

A skippered boat trip uses the same little narrowboats as our self-cruise day hire, but with the addition of someone to drive the boat. It is perfect for hen parties or stag parties on boats, as well as family groups and corporate bookings
