Canal Experience training is dedicated to ensuring that everyone can enjoy time spent on the Inland Waterways safely.

We offer the core RYA Helmsman’s Course, RYA Crew Course and CEVNI Test which will help you to get started or to improve on your boating skills.

Fancy a Narrowboat Taster Day? Try a day out under instruction – great for groups of 3-6.

Own boat tuition can be arranged and if you have your own boat we can come to you.

If you don't need a qualification, we can arrange personal tuition to suit your needs and help you improve your skills.

Perhaps you just fancy a day out on the water with the family - make a great gift for someone special.

And for corporate customers, try a day out on the water with a team building day.

Based on the Southern Grand Union, we moved to a new base for 2018, just South of Rickmansworth and north of Harefield (Uxbridge), you can experience the hidden beauty and nature of our heritage waterways, merely yards from the motorways, railways and towns.

(We were previously based at Hunton Bridge, Watford).

Competence and confidence are the keys to enjoying your time on the water. Our years of experience will transform your course into a practical and enjoyable event.

All of our instructors have considerable experience both as boatmen and women and as trainers. They are also qualified in First Aid and treat your safety as a priority.
