2020 Scheduled Trips

Welcome to our scheduled boat trip page

Covid-19

Regrettably, we’ve taken the decision to cancel all events, boat trips, visits & talks, until mid July.  We will review the situation again then.

On this list, you will find our scheduled ‘Turn up and Ride’ 30minute and, in the case of trips from Harlaxton Wharf, 45minute trips.

Bookable Cruise and Dine and Fishy Friday trips are also listed (green).

Most trips (blue) operate from Woolsthorpe by Belvoir (Dirty Duck Pub).  The canal depot is here too – look out for the trips which run from Harlaxton Wharf (red) – we don’t want you to miss the boat!

Trips from Woolsthorpe, book on arrival at the red gazebo near the pub car park gates to secure your place.  No pre-booking on these trips, other than on arrival.  Places subject to availability.  Please note: our boat seats 10 people.  There is a finite number of trips we can run in a day.  We do sometimes become over subscribed – particularly if the weather is fine.  Please consider this if travelling some distance.

The Dirty Duck Pub/Canal Depot are located at Woolsthorpe by Belvoir, NG32 1NY

Trips from Harlaxton Wharf, book on arrival on the wharf to secure your place. No pre-booking other than on arrival.

Please note, there are no facilities at the wharf.  Parking is on the roadside, please park responsibly – not blocking field gateways or driveways.  There is no footpath – please take care.

Harlaxton Wharf is located on The Drift (between the villages of Harlaxton & Barrowby), NG32 1AE 

Boat trip prices: Woolsthorpe trips: Adults £3.00  Children £2.00

Sorry, no dogs on board the boat.  We welcome well behaved dogs in the canal depot and grounds.
