Day Boat Hire

What to expect when booking your Day Boat Hire with us

As Ratty said to Mole…

‘There is nothing – absolutely nothing – half so much worth doing, as simply messing about in boats’

Cruise and relax on a Snaygill Day Hire Narrowboat in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales. Carrying a maximum of 8 people on our Canal Day Boats means you can enjoy the slow pace of life with family and friends. There’s plenty to do for everyone with places to stop along the way. We cater for the novice and experienced cruiser alike; we will provide you with all the canal boat handling information and safety equipment you need as well as advice on a suitable route for you to enjoy. Our Day Hire canal boats come fully equipped with everything you need, simply sit back and enjoy messing about in a boat!
