Canal Boat Holidays are the perfect blend of rest, relaxation, and fun. There is nothing quite like taking a restful canal float in order to regain some perspective and return to daily life with a new and free lease on life. Why? Because canal boat holidays are the perfect way to slow down and get reconnected with your own priorities.
Canal boats are a little different from other boating holidays. The canals are set up for a slow “float” rather than a racing run, with specified areas for turning about. Before you leave for your holiday you need to review the rules for canal boating and be ready to follow those rules.
Canal Boat Holidays can stretch from just a couple of days to several weeks to a month long run down the canal. Fortunately, following the rules are rather easy and the waterway is quite clear about the various rules and it is simple to ask someone close by or via the radio should you encounter a question you don’t understand. The boating company employees are there to ensure that you understand the rules and have the basic skills to navigate some of the easiest waterways in the world. You do not have to have a lot of experience with boats or waterway rules in order to navigate the canals. In fact, if you are entirely new to boat hires, the canals are a very good place to start your waterborne experience.
Canal Boat Holidays are a fun and relaxing way to engage with family members, friends, and all the new people that you will meet along the way. With pubs and eateries along the canals, a rich history, and a sweet way of life, most people leave their holiday with a fantastic feeling of refreshment.
