What a fab experience, something really different. Staff great, explained everything clearly. Such a pretty canal just a shame we couldn’t go further but with 2 locks it’s completely understandable why we couldn’t. Would highly recommend 👍

We did the hot tug experience on a sunny sunday at the end of the afternoon. Although I wish the canal on which you can navigate would be longer the experience itself was great. All the team was nice, friendly and helpful. Thank you!

Such a great time in the hot tug! A lot of fun. The guy briefing us was very nice, clear and laidback. The experience itself is lovely and along a pretty section of canal. Easy to book. Good all round.

The temperature of the tubs can be adjusted :) I’d just let them know what your preferences are!

No, you pilot the boat yourself, but you can't go very far or get lost - it is one stretch of canal between two locks and around the basin where the boat is moored.
