First Time Afloat?

Narrowboats, Widebeams and the canals in general can seem daunting when you've got little or no experience. At White Rose Canal Holidays, we take your tuition very seriously and we never let our boaters leave us without feeling fully comfortable with the handling of the boat and the operation of the canal, including locks, swing-bridges and all of the amenities available. We make sure you are prepared from the minute you book, where you will receive an instructional video, a quick guide and route information regarding your break. During handover procedures, we take you through the theory and the practise of boat handling whilst also demonstrating the operation of locks and canal equipment. On the Leeds & Liverpool canal, all of the more challenging flights of locks have lock-keepers to guide you through them, meaning that you can relax in the knowledge that experienced hands are nearby.

Experienced Boater?

We've got you covered, too. Do you feel like climbing the pennines on the Leeds & Liverpool Canal towards Skipton? Maybe you'd like to cruise down the Aire & Calder towards Castleford, Goole or the Huddersfield Narrow Canal? Our routes pass through nature reserves, UNESCO World Heritage Sites, villages and historic towns with a good dose of Pennine countryside in between. We offer the same tuition to everybody, regardless of experience. There is always something to learn and we love to help seasoned boaters to have a new experience on the canals and rivers of Yorkshire.

We provide continued support to our clients whilst they search for their dream narrowboat or widebeam - we love to help people to realise their dreams both through our holidays and by providing advise on procuring the right boat at the right time, for you.
