Wandering Duck Canal Boat Adventure (3 Night Tour)

A unique and fully hosted multi-day canal boat tour.

27 March - 01 September 2015

The ultimate canal boat experience, this active 3 night tour takes you on a journey from Castlefield, through the Gay Village, past Manchester City's Etihad Stadium and out to beautiful rural countryside.  

Have a go at steering the 69ft Narrowboat and help work through 3 flights of locks. You'll see the city as most people have never seen, and once out of Manchester you'll travel through tunnels and over an aqueduct. Help out as much or as little as you like.

A great opportunity to mix with locals and experience a way of life very few people know much about.
