Bath Narrowboats is a long established boat hire business on the Kennet and Avon Canal based in the beautiful heritage city of Bath. We specialise in memorable day trips cruising the Kennet & Avon Canal from Bath to Bradford-on-Avon...
For the greener option experience why not experience the tranquility of an electric dayboat to explore the canal
You can hire an electric day boat or Canadian canoe for a full or half day from our base at Brassknocker Basin near Monkton Combe in the stunning Limpley Stoke Valley, just 5 miles from Bath city centre. All the boats are electrically powered and simple to manoeuvre.
Enjoy a peaceful cruise, exploring the canal between Bath and Bradford on Avon. Stop at canalside pubs and teagardens or bring you own picnic. We have Day Boats to seat 4,8,10 & 12 people and Canoes for between 2 & 4 people.
It’s the perfect day out for family, friends and children.
The rush of driving along busy roads, of queuing in congested towns will fade into the background once you travel at your own gentle pace where the beauty of the surrounding scene is something you and all in your party can see and enjoy.along the canal.
All of our boats are hired on a first-come first-serve basis. We do offer an advanced booking service for all of our boats and we request 50% deposit payment at the point of booking.
First time on a boat? Our staff will show you the controls of the boat explain operating procedures and demonstrate where necessary. You will also be given information about the rules of navigation. Our day boats are easy to operate with just a forward and reverse leaver and wheel making it easy for the most novice helmsman to operate .all boats have full instructions and navigational details on board. Buoyancy aides will be issued on request and children under 12 must wear them at all times. In inclement weather the canvas top can be drawn back to provide cover.
If you feel, you'd rather not steer the boat then we can supply a skipper who will accompany your party at an extra cost.
( Please note, the skipper counts as one of your party i.e 9 + skipper if hiring a ten person boat )
Half day hire skipper £ 75
Full day skipper £ 100
