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

Based on the Southern Grand Union, we are moving 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 and are re-opening at the new base in 2018).

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.
