It’s tough keeping everyone in your group happy, let alone yourself. Booking a memorable day out that pleases everyone puts pressure on you. That’s why we’ve earned a reputation for taking the hard work out of organising your big day.
Your canal trip experience with us begins long before you ever set foot on The Dalesman, our fifty-seat boat. From the moment you book we go out of our way to guarantee you a boat full of happy faces.
There’s no request too demanding for our friendly crew, who are always ready to spoil your group with cream tea and delicious scones. Our boat is like your floating restaurant with drinks, entertainment and buffet dinners – where every table is a window seat with an ever-changing view.
Your trip doesn’t finish when we safely dock back in Skipton either. We go the extra mile to help people with mobility needs get comfortably to your coach on time so the rest of your day goes to plan. We even post back people’s lost property and help you organise the rest of your day trip.
Our loyal customers say we’re cool under pressure and always fantastically organised. They’ve given us awards for it. Find out why our renowned Skipton canal trips take some beating, call us on 01756 790 829 now.
