A SPECIAL EVENING CRUISE WITH A SELECTION OF ITALIAN FOODS AND A GLASS OF PROSECCO
If you have special dietary requirements, please note when booking, or contact the Booking Team. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Due to the ongoing low water level we will be heading eastwards not westwards as previously advertised.
Leaving Colt Hill wharf at 7pm we will head towards the Barley Mow, turning here and then leisurely returning back to the wharf. Please note extended times of 3 1/2 hours or more, especially if arranging a taxi.
Recommended for adults only.
Cruise in the peaceful surroundings of the Basingstoke Canal
The canal is an SSSI, and not only serves as a local recreational amenity but is also a notable wildlife habitat.
The alkaline water from the chalk springs at Greywell and the acid water content eastward where the canal passes through heathland, has given rise to one of the largest varieties of aquatic plants and invertebrates in the United Kingdom.
As many as 25 of Britain’s 39 species of dragonflies and damselflies inhabit the canal.
You may get lucky and see a Kingfisher. It is considered to be a lucky bird. You can also see herons swans, ducks, geese, moorhens (often with young) and various local floras.
Cruise times may be extended in low water conditions.
