Details about the JP II can be found on the Public and Theme Trips and Charter Cruises web pages. The popular theme trips during 2018 are to be repeated this year, with a few new additions, including a Murder Mystery, Caribbean Night, Family Treasure Hunt and Tapas and Spanish Wine cruises.

In addition, you can buy Public and Theme Cruise Vouchers as gifts to others for them to use on the booking site above towards trips of their choosing. Ideal for Christmas, birthdays, and other special occasions. Find the voucher link at the bottom of the Public and Theme trips web page.

Please Note: Charter trips will continue to be booked directly with our Booking Team, on 01256-765889 (10am – no later than 6pm please). They will also help with public and theme trips booking, and with the purchase and redemption of vouchers by those without access to on-line facilities.

The Society’s second trip boat Kitty will be providing trips in Woking from early April until mid-October.

Operating under the John Pinkerton Canal Cruises banner, the boat accommodates up to 12 people, including up to 2 wheelchair users.

Following another successful year of operation last year, it has been decided that there will be yet more opportunities to book trips throughout the season.

For more details about the boat itself, see the About Our Boats page. There is a printed leaflet available. For more information on when trips will take place and how to book, see the Kitty website.  Most trips can be booked online, via our secure booking system.

Gift vouchers are also available for trips on Kitty, a link to which can be found at the bottom of the Kitty web page.
