“Great opportunity to get out and about”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2012

This is a great little boat that gives disabled people from all walks of life the opportunity to see the Cheshire countryside from the water. We saw heron, ducks and Canada geese on the water; cattle, horses and deer in the fields. The on board (mainly volunteer) team was great - friendly, knowledgeable and couldn't have been more helpful.
