Wandering Duck Canal Boat Day Tour

This unique Day Tour offers families and small groups the chance to work locks and steer the 69ft narrowboat.

21 April - 27 September 2015

Wandering Duck is the unique, fully hosted Canal Boat Experience.

Day trips are available for groups of up to 10 people and the boat is exclusively yours for the day.  

During the day you will travel from Whaley Bridge on the edge of the Peak District, to Romiley on the edge of Greater Manchester.

The day includes working through 18 locks, cruising over the tallest aqueduct in England, and travelling through the 300m Hyde Bank Tunnel.

Wandering Duck's tours are very hands-on; you'll learn how to work the locks & manual bridges and you're encouraged to have a go at steering the boat.
