The Surprising Christmas Gift That the Whole Family Will Love

christmas gift boat hireAre you struggling to come up with a surprising gift idea?

Do you wish your family spent more time together?

Want to get the kids away from gaming, and the adults away from their smart phones?

Then a day out on a narrowboat could be the unique gift you are looking for!

If you’d like to avoid tiring shopping trips looking for individual presents, why not treat the whole family to an unexpected boat outing? Our day hire vouchers for a trip on a narrowboat are for up to 10 people and make a wonderful Christmas gift.

Our marina, in the lovely Fenland market town of March, is surrounded by some of the most beautiful Cambridgeshire waterways. The navigable River Nene is ideal for pleasure boating. If you cruise east through the town of March towards the picturesque village of Upwell the journey will take you about six and a half hours. Alternatively if you decide to travel west you will pass Floods Ferry Marina Park and arrive at Ashline Lock and the town of Whittlesey.

Our self-drive day boat hire offers you the freedom to stop where ever and whenever the mood takes you, and you can let everyone have a turn at steering.

Our day boats are the March Adventurer and the March Explorer. Both boats have a seating area and a toilet, and you will find the galley complete with hob, fridge, sink, crockery and cutlery. There is enough room at the bow or stern so that everyone can be outside, and you can even bring your dog. We’re a family-run business offering a friendly service and are happy to answer any questions you may have.

A day boat hire trip for up to 10 people can be taken* any midweek day between Easter and 30th September, excluding bank holidays, for £175. Tuition and lifejackets are included and there is no extra charge for fuel. A day hire voucher for a weekend day is just £200.

You can buy the voucher now and use it when the weather is warmer; this will give everyone time to synchronise their diaries! (Beyond your budget? Get the family to chip in and agree to make memories together in 2018.)
