Day Boat Hire – Difficult times but a great new offer!

Our Day Boat hire has had to change due to the current local restrictions!

What a year it has been!  Covid has certainly made a mess of our calendar, canceled bookings, rescheduling bookings to next year, now Local Restrictions!

Autumn is a great time to visit the canals calm crisp days, the foliage on the trees starting to turn, less traffic, it is one of our favorite times of the year.

The Day Boat usually take 12 people, but as Warrington now has local restrictions we can only accommodate One Household, plus support bubble on the boat.  The majority of our bookings for October were for groups of people so sadly we have had no option but to cancel or reschedule their bookings, but we have decided to create a great new offer to attract single households (see below).

There seems to be a lot of confusion around support bubbles, so or clarity a support bubble is where a household with one adult joins with another household (on an exclusive basis), the number of people in the household (plus support bubble) does not matter.  We have taken the decision to exclude people who live in shared accomodation (HMO, student, etc) from this as it will cause us negative comments form our customers and will lead to calls to us and officials.

You can face a £100 fine for breaching the new rules and we can face a £10,000 fine for allowing it to happen.

Please do not think you will be able to pick up friends down the canal as many of the boats you pass are our customer and they will ring us and inform us if you are breaking the rules.  We know of at least one occurrence of where the police have been called to a group (not on our boat) and they were removed from the boat and all fined £100.

If you want to hire the Day Boat but are unsure of what this all means please give us a call 01925 265129.
