Our mission is to provide a safe and fun experience for community groups on the canals around the West Midlands, to promote a greater awareness and understanding of the place of inland waterways in our environment and history, and to encourage and foster respectful use of local canals as a recreational amenity for everyone.
We are regulated by the NCBA
(National Community Boats Association: www.national-cba.co.uk) and are an NCBA accredited training centre.
We operate two boats from Hatherton Marina at Calf Heath:
N.B. Enterprise is a wheelchair-friendly narrowboat that offers day trips in the beautiful countryside around the West Midlands. Visitors can either visit a pub for a friendly meal and chat, eat fish and chips on the boat or towpath, or have an extended cruise and eat fish and chips on board. Groups can also bring a picnic if they wish.
N.B Felgate is a residential narrowboat used for community groups and training. It can sleep up to 12 people and can take you further afield to offer a more in-depth experience of the waterways including operating locks and mooring up.
Both of our boats come with a skipper and crew to ensure that your trip is safe, educational and fun. We cater for uniformed organisations, youth groups, residential care homes, schools, church groups, businesses and more.
As well as offering day trips, we offer training through NCBA courses and ‘Have-a-go’ days where groups and individuals may experience handling a full length narrowboat for the first time or brush up on skills and techniques with a qualified trainer and crew.
