Co budeš dělat

You'll learn how to drive a narrowboat and all the tips that come with it. As we cruise the canal I will show you the ropes so you can jump right into action! You'll be driving the boat yourself, experiencing the canal from a completely new perspective! Be prepared to be active, maybe wet (Hopefully not! Life jackets are provided) and it will be a lot of fun. I'll guide you and be with you the entire time while you get your hands on steering, whether you're new to boating or just curious about it!

You don’t need any previous boating experience. A driving licence isn't necessary to cruise a boat however if you are thinking of moving into a boat you would benefit from basic training to feel comfortable and safe with cruising. As a continuous cruiser I move on the London canals so your training will take place wherever I am moored at that time. The boat is officially licensed and completely safe.

Basic training session is about 3 hours, I also offer extensive full day training: going through locks and introduction to boating lifestyle and technical workings (please contact me to arrange). A maximum of 4 people per session ensures a very personal experience and your safety.

Boating is my passion and hobby. I have lived on a narrowboat for many years as a continuous cruiser on the London canals. I have gained extensive experience cruising various boats including wide-beams in both a professional and personal capacity and have a full-on experience of living on a barge. Over the years I have learned boating skills such as going through locks, tunnels, mooring up, rope knots and general boating knowledge.

Kde budeš

I will teach on my narrowboat, which is a special place to see and experience. We will cruise through the London canals, depending on where the boat is at that time. Some of the areas I moor at are: Kensal Green, Little Venise, Camden, Kings Cross, Angel, Victoria park, Hackney Wick, Limehouse, Tottenham Hale, Enfield. Don't hesitate to ask if you'd like to do your training in a specific place. PLEASE NOTE THE MEETING POINT WILL REGULARLY CHANGE.

A really fun and novel experience - we now have the confidence to holiday on a narrowboat. The time flew by and we were allowed to really get stuck in, which was great.

Fantastic experience. I recently found out about narrow boating on the canals in the U.K. and wanted to get a taste of it. This was the perfect introduction. Gaia's guidance was thorough and she made us very comfortable. Recommended!

I had a great time cruising down London's canals and learning about the workings of the narrowboat with Gaïa. Her passion for life on the water is evident and infectious, and the structure of the session leaves enough time to both learn about some of the mechanics and procedures, as well as plenty of time for a lovely trip down the canal. Highly recommended for a change of pace from the usual pace of city life.

Super expérience ! Gaïa nous a très bien accueillis et s’est montrée très pédagogue. Elle maîtrise bien son sujet et aime faire partager son expérience. Elle a plein d’anecdotes à raconter et répond volontiers aux questions. Très souriante et détendue, mais elle ne néglige pas la sécurité, bien au contraire. Et en plus, même si elle dit qu’elle n’y est pour rien, on a eu du soleil ! ☀️ Le temps d’un instant on s’est sentis membres de la communauté ! A recommander absolument ! Merci Gaïa !

Wonderful canal cruising experience with Gaia! She teaches the basics of the narrowboat, and gives lots of opportunities for us to experience cruising ourselves. From her own personal experiences, we learned a lot about the canal boating lifestyle. A must-try in London!
