Useful canal boating videos

A selection of useful videos to watch ahead of your canal boat holiday.

Watch these videos before going narrowboat cruising for the first time and get some tips on how to navigate our waterways safely during your canal boat holiday.

We’ve published a series of videos to help guide you through handling and managing a canal boat.  You can watch our ‘Boat Handover’ video here.
