Use our Narrow Boat for your group

Posted on May 27th, 2010 by admin

Our 48ft Narrow Boat is available for other groups to use, either for a day trip or longer adventure. Whether you have Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Brownies, Guides or others groups we can help you organise a fun and exciting trip down the rivers of East Anglia and beyond.

To enquire about booking a trip on the boat, simple email us HERE

We have one of very few Narrow Boats in UK Scouting, and it’s available for any group to use for a small donation to cover costs. Don’t worry if you don’t have a qualified helmsman, we have volunteers available to look after the boating; you just need the children and picnics/food.

With the changes to badges, time on the boat can contribute to the new ‘time on the water’ badge without getting their feet wet? A ‘night away’ and ‘cooks badge’, plus others, all within one activity.

With full cooking facilities, toilet and shower you can easily survive for several days comfortably. There is accommodation for 10 children and two leaders (one being a qualified RYA Helmsman), sleeping indoors within the comfort and security of the open plan living area.

Enjoy a completely different experience on the open water, safe in the knowledge you’re with qualified and CRB checked helpers.

Make the most of the summer and give your group a truly exceptional adventure they’ll talk about for years.
