It can be a daunting task travelling down the waterways for the first time. It isn’t difficult, but in order that you feel comfortable you need to be with a company who takes your enjoyment and safety seriously. All Drifters operators do this. You will be shown how to steer your boat, and simple daily boat checks and safety instructions will be explained. You will be briefed on how to work locks, and told special features of the local waterways. Before you arrive, you will get the chance to watch a film which demonstrates lots of useful boatman’s tips.
