SEA SHANTIES – A MUSICAL CRUISE WITH ‘GALE FORCE 8’ AND FISH AND CHIP SUPPER ON DEPARTURE   This cruise is now SOLD OUT but please take a look at our other themed cruises.

Join ‘Gale Force 8’ as they entertain us with sea shanties, for an evening cruise on the Basingstoke canal. Fish and chips will be served on departure and the galley is open all evening for you to purchase hot and cold drinks from our extensive range of wines, beers and more.

These cruises generally last around 3½ hours, the direction to be determined by the skipper according to canal conditions. Recommended for adults only.

Fish & chips is included in the ticket price. If you have special dietary requirements, please note when booking, or contact the Booking Team.

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.
