If you’re looking for a beginner-friendly canal boat holiday then choosing Black Prince is a great place to start. Each year we welcome lots of new guests who haven’t had any prior boating experience. On your arrival day at the canal boat hire base of your choice you’ll be met by one of our team and we’ll go through our accredited handover procedure. The highlights of this handover are shown in the video below.
Our handover includes walking you through the boat, from the tiller at the back of the boat (stern) through the inside of the boat to the bow at the front. We’ll explain how everything works from turning the engine on, along with the rest of the controls to setting off and how to steer the canal boat.
We’ll also talk through the ‘do’s and don’ts’ of canal etiquette and health and safety issues that may arise. Our aim is that you feel fully prepared when you set off on your canal boat holiday.
