Using the Drifters Availability Search
Choose a location:
This allows you to narrow down the results to the principle area that you wish to visit.
Choose this option if you want to see the full range of our current availability.
UK Canals and Waterways:
In England and Wales, we have narrowboats and barges on the canals, rivers and most of the inland navigations.
In Scotland, we have Narrowboats on the Forth & Clyde canal and the Union Canal
Size of boat:
This refers to the number of beds and hence the size of your party, so it is straight forward enough. However, there are times when there is a shortage of boats available, so although you may only require say, a two berth boat, it might be best to select ‘All available’ as this will bring up everything that we have and you may then find that there is a larger boat available at a suitable price.
Select the period in which you want your holiday to start. You should bear in mind that if the search comes back with lots of pages of results, they will be listed in date order so you can skip to your ideal dates quickly.
Week, Midweek or Weekend short break:
Very straightforward choice here. As always though, you can select ‘All available’ to widen the options.
Once the results of your search have been displayed (in date order), you can click on any of the column titles to re-sort the results by price, location or type.
