For a taster day trip we suggest you travel South to Sandon, we have to work between turning points and Sandon is a comfortable day return back to Stone.  During this route you can head straight down to Sandon and have lunch at the award winning ‘Dog and Doublet’  or Stop off at the Aston Marina or the Greyhound at Burston.



You have full cooking facilities why not cook aboard or have a picnic.

All the tuition is the same as if you we going on holiday. Boat handling and Lock demonstration.  We run through our handover sheet and then take you through your first lock, giving you the experience of boat handling between this and the next lock.
