The Open Water Cruise

Embark on our 4-hour open water cruise, immersing yourself in the raw charm of the canals around Dudley and Tipton. Our journey offers a unique blend of industrial heritage and unexpected wildlife encounters, creating an unforgettable experience that transcends the ordinary.

Guided by our expert skipper, delve into the rich tapestry of the local waterways, each stretch echoing tales of a bygone industrial era. As you navigate through two sets of locks, seize the chance to disembark and witness the mesmerizing precision of the lockwheelers at work. While the surrounding area may bear the marks of time, our cruise promises an authentic exploration of the hidden gems and untold stories woven into the fabric of these historic canals. Join us for a voyage that reveals the beauty and resilience of this industrial landscape, where every ripple tells a tale waiting to be discovered.

The boat departs promptly at 10am, so please ensure you arrive at least 15 minutes before to allow you time to board.
