While not mandatory, we advise all passengers to wear life jackets while on deck, particularly when inside locks and when mooring, where the risk of accidents is greater. Life jackets are provided on all our boats and, if not already onboard, children’s lifejackets will be available at reception. Children should be supervised at all times.
Please take care when stepping off the boat onto the river bank or towpath as rocks, roots and other trip hazards may be not be visible. It is advisable to nominate a ‘captain’ who is responsible for the rest of the crew, ensuring they stay safe and follow these guidelines.
