Family outing

Our boats are perfect for access to the river environment.

Our boats are perfect for a leisurely trip along the river with commentary, coupled with shore-based activities.  These can include wild-bird feeding, colouring in and other shore based activities linked to curriculum requirements.

Having previously hosted successful school/educational groups - Don't just take our word for it, see the quotes on the right.

The Plough
Fen Ditton

Our mission is to provide an alternative and unique means of engaging children more directly with concepts such as waterway ecology, canal history and heritage, travel and transport, pollution and environmental impact. All of these topics can be delivered in isolation or as a wider more encompassing event, through a variety of means that could involve the children in any form of imaginative learning from artistic expression, to map reading and the development of canal tour guides!

The event provides an innovative way of fulfilling many areas of cross curricular interest within the National Curriculum and can be designed to meet the demands of all of the Key Stages.

The events can last up to half a day.  Trips should be planned some time in advance to ensure that the specified intended learning outcomes can be sufficiently and innovatively designed into the event.

"Everyone had a great time, we will look at making this an annual trip"

"Thank you for a lovely trip – The children loved seeing all the wildlife and the experience of being on the boat was fantastic.  Hopefully we will continue with our water topic in future years and so will be making return visits!"

 CG, School Teacher - Cambridge

Please note, to access our boats requires use of 3 steps down into the cabin – we are researching options to add a wheelchair ramp/hoist at some stage in the future.

Our new boat "Princess Charlotte" has a flat deck with easy access, with a plan to add a direct access wheelchair ramp.
