To check availability and make your booking is very straightforward.
Use the form above to find holidays on all of our boats and bases across the UK.
Select a location from our choice of starting points in England, Scotland and Wales.
Select a date period in which you wish to start your holiday or break.
Choose how long you want the holiday to be.
Select how many people there will be in your party.
You can select which day of the week you prefer to start and add other preferences in the advanced options by pressing the filter button.
Press the ‘Check Availability’ button.
In the event you find that nothing is currently showing as available, please search again using either different locations, or new dates. If in doubt simply search for everything available on your chosen date! At busy times of the year it can be harder to find the perfect boat from your chosen location and so by broadening your search criteria, you are more likely to find something suitable somewhere. With so many boats and bases, Drifters are almost unique in their ability to help you get your best option.

RT @CRTBoating If you are new to cruising the #Birmingham Canal Network either as a boat owner or perhaps hiring a boat, why not try the Titford canal as a cruise? Our friends @BCNSociety have some great advice on their website ow.ly/GY4C50GVj6R pic.twitter.com/IYEg1jNyZF
RT @AngloWelsh Llangollen is a magical little town, especially at #Christmas time, so why not visit by narrowboat? From our base at Trevor on the Llangollen Canal in North Wales, it takes just two hours to cruise the lock-free stretch to this beautiful town nestled in the Berwyn Mountains 🌲 pic.twitter.com/LGhNlwxuuq
RT @AbcBoatHire The East Midlands Ring, available from Gayton Marina, is ideal for boaters wanting to test their helmsman skills and seek variety in their route. Navigating 115 locks along the way, you will cruise multiple waterways and pass through countryside, villages and cities. #staycation pic.twitter.com/9MFN4yV7em
