Set out below are just a few suggestions for your cruise itinerary. Due to the nature of skippered cruising the routes are designed to enable us to return to our home in Long Itchington each evening.

 

We would however love to discuss any other possible routes, ideas, etc., that you may have, to make your holiday a memorable one.
 
Skippered cruising is a great introduction to canals. Cruising along at 4mph (top speed) you can enjoy the views of rural England. It's a chance to re-charge your batteries, relaxing in the peace and tranquility of the countryside.
 
It can be a time for you to indulge in your favourite pastimes - fishing (licence required), painting, photography, birdwatching, etc.
 
If there is a place of interest on or near the canal that you wish to visit we may be able to arrange an excursion. You just have to ask. Skippered cruising gives you a great opportunity to have a tailor made stress free break. There will be opportunities to have a "non cruise" day should you choose to spend more than one night at a particular location.
