Lovely evening trip along the canal

What a lovely relaxing few hours, meandering along the canal, beautiful boat, perfect hosts. Time went very quickly, but it was so peaceful, a thoroughly enjoyable experience.

Our skittles team went for a two hour cruise last Saturday on the Lady Lena and had the most wonderful time. Greeted by Helen and Jenks, very friendly and then onto the cruiser for the trip. Very comfortable with lots of cushions for everyone. Champagne and a fantastic cream tea. It was so relaxing and informative, we hope to repeat... More

Many thanks to Helen and Jenks for a super trip and a fantastic cream tea. From being welcomed on board with a glass of bubbly to being dropped off a couple of hours later, the time just flew. The Lady Lena had everything that we needed - including a loo and a fascinating history. Thoroughly enjoyable and very highly recommended.

I booked a two hour trip back in February as a surprise for my husband's 40th in August. What a wonderful experience. I wish I could give more than a rating of 5. From the start any queries and questions I had were answered promptly and politely by Jenks via email which made the booking process completely stress free. We... More

We spent a beautiful June evening on this lovely boat. Everything about the trip was perfect. You can bring your own picnic and drink. Helen and the 'Captain ' were excellent hosts - knowing when to tell us of points of interest but leaving us alone to enjoy the sights and wildlife. This is a different sort of treat. Unusual...

Thanks Helen and Jenks for the fabulous boat ride. It was a magical evening with wonderful people. The history is great and it's better coming from people who are from the area rather than someone who has just read and preaches. Was so great to catch up. See you in NZ next year. :-)

What a wonderful afternoon I had with a group of friends on the Lady Lena ! From the crisp white table cloth, choice of interesting local teas, beautiful fresh flowers and mouth watering sweet and cheese scones, the whole experience was certainly special in every way. Thank you to the lovely Helen and Canal man Jenks for a great and... More

We are just back from an idyllic afternoon cruise drifting down the Avon and Kennet Canal. The lady Lena is a beautifully restored electric launch skippered by the very knowledgeable Jenks whose family have a long canal tradition. Helen his wife served a delicious cream tea and a glass of champagne. This unique trip offers a different prospective on Bath... More

Helen and Jenks run a wonderful family business with their beautiful boat the Lady Lena. The entire process from booking to the end of the trip is easy and professional. And the trip - it is brilliant from start to finish. You are greeted at the boat after receiving excellent directions by the lovely Helen and Jenks. They kick off... More
