Enjoy a fish and chips supper or lunch and the ever-changing scenery of the Chichester Ship Canal.

Trips take around 2 hours and include fish & chips, tea & coffee or fruit juice, one glass of wine or real ale. Additional wine or beer is available to buy separately.

The canal is a beautiful retreat close to the city, easily accessible by public transport.
Enjoy the reflections on the water and the unique views of the cathedral and South Downs, especially magical in the sunset. As you glide past the wild flowers and reed beds, watch out for herons, kingfishers and water voles in their natural habitat.
