Due to COVID-19 our boat trips are limited.
We are working hard to bring back more boat trips despite the challenges.
From 1st August, some John Pinkerton boat trips have resumed on a charter basis.
Unfortunately because the Kitty is a smaller boat social distancing is more difficult and Kitty will be out of operation for the present.
We are only conducting charter trips at present on the John Pinkerton II.
We have no public or themed trips available.
Charter trips booked so far are those shown in the list of Scheduled Trips & Events. If you would like to charter on a day without a trip shown, please contact the Booking Team.
We can accept bookings for a maximum 25 passengers.
Cruising in the peaceful surroundings of the Basingstoke Canal is a great way to relax.
You can charter the whole boat for exclusive use by family, friends or work colleagues.
There is a limit of 5 tables socially spaced. Each table will be reserved for a single household or support bubble of 5 passengers.
The dry summer has reduced water levels in the canal, so cruises are taking about 3.5 hours.
Our special ‘Covid_Secure Boat’ charter cruise costs £150.
