Welcome to Wandering Duck

The Canal Boat Experience

Wandering Duck is the UK’s only multi-day canal boat tour of its kind.

Join us on a 2 or 3 night canal boat experience on our 69ft Narrowboat.

Experience life on the canals as we travel between Manchester and the Peak District, or through the beautiful Cheshire countryside.

In 2017 we will be also be running a 4 night trip between the two Northern cities of Manchester and Liverpool – take a look at our City to City page for further details.

Come on your own and join like-minded adventurers, or bring a group of friends for your own exclusive tour.

We’ll show you how to steer the boat, work the locks, operate the bridges, and take care of all the food with great home-cooked meals.

We know all the best pubs, walks, and sites along our routes. Let us be your guides, and introduce you to the hidden world of the canals.

If you are interested in joining a Wandering Duck tour but none of our listed dates are suitable please contact us to discuss your requirements – we can also run half day trips / canal boat taster experiences on the Macclesfield and Peak Forest Canals.  If you know someone who has always wanted to spend some time on a canal boat we can offer gift vouchers for that special present.
