Come to Brecon at the heart of the Brecon Beacons National Park and hire a luxury electric boat or Canadian canoe for the day, half-day or by the hour from the terminus of the Monmouthshire & Brecon Canal. Pack a picnic or enjoy lunch at one of the canalside pubs. You can even bring your dog along for the cruise!

Luxury electric day boats
•We offer two different sizes of electric boat: ◾8-seater (16′ long) for up to 8 people (no more than 6 adults)
◾6-seater (15′ long) for up to 6 people (no more than 4 adults)

•Each boat has a very quiet, electric engine and is simple to drive; it has a steering wheel and a throttle, and its maximum speed on the canal is 2½ miles per hour! No experience of boats is necessary as you’ll be given clear tuition before you set off.
•Should it rain, you simply pull up the rainproof cover and you’re sitting inside.
•We provide life jackets for everyone.
•On board there is a boating pole for pushing off, mooring pins and a hammer for securing the boat and a lock handle to operate the locks and the lift bridges.
•Up to two dogs are welcome on each boat.
•A great day out for large groups – we have two 8-seater boats and
four 6-seater boats.
•Gift vouchers available.

Canadian canoes
•We have four canoes (15′ long), each suitable for 3 adults or 2 adults and 2 children (maximum weight limit 40 stone). Each person has a single bladed paddle to propel the canoe along.
•Novices are welcome; you’ll receive instruction when you arrive.
•Up to two dogs can be accommodated in a canoe.
•We provide life jackets for everyone.
•On board there are mooring pins and a hammer for securing the boat. You don’t need a lock handle as canoes are not allowed in the locks. Instead carry the canoe around the lock to continue your journey.
