Wandering Duck

Wandering Duck is a unique alternative to canal boat hire. We're a hosted 2-3 night canal boat experience for people on a small budget who are looking for a taster experience. We're the only canal boat tour of this kind in the UK. In fact, we invented the concept to be able to show off the little-known canal network to people new to canal boating.

Hire the whole boat with your friends, or come on your own and meet like-minded people. Have a go at steering, help out at the locks, or kick back with a beer. It's about zero stress, just a good time.

We're perfect for Birthdays, Hen & Stag parties, Social Groups, or any adventurous backpackers or holiday-makers looking for a unique experience whilst they're in the UK.

With an ipod dock, guitar, on board honesty bar (we even have a real ale hand-pump!) and and well-travelled hosts Mark & Ruth, we're sure you'll have a fun and memorable experience with us.

Our tours are 2-3 nights in duration, and we run from March to October. We can accommodate up to 8 guests (10 for small group exclusive use). All tours are one-way so you don't have to travel the same stretch of canal twice. All our routes are within easy reach of Manchester and all start and finish points are within walking distance of train stations, or we can help with taxi arrangements.

A two night tour costs £145 per person including:

- On board accommodation (mixed-sex bunk cabins).
- Breakfast.
- Lunch.
- Homemade two-course evening meal.
- Tea, real coffee, and hot chocolate with marshmallows.
- Fresh fruit.
- Homemade cakes.
- And of course, your friendly hosts!

We look forward to welcoming you aboard Wandering Duck.
