Overview of Support offered
Our boat The Trebalisa is moored outside the centre and can take parties of up to 22 on a trip along the waterways through some beautiful countryside. We provide a fully qualified skipper and crew. The normal length of a trip is 3.5 hours. Trebalisa can stop in Compton and there is a chip shop if you are feeling peckish. Otherwise bring a packed lunch.
It is worth travelling on the boat to see the wonderful bird life and if you are lucky you might see a flash of bright blue, which is our resident kingfisher. The waterway journey takes the boat through locks and participants can try their hand at opening a lock and even steering the boat.
Tea and coffee are supplied.
