‘Dot’ is just like all of our other Day Boats but a little smaller and priced accordingly. Perfect for small groups, families or couples to enjoy the River Wey for the day. Why not try a day hire as a taster to see if you might like a longer narrowboat holiday in the future? We promise you a great day out, whatever the season. Our boats are available every day of the week from the beginning of April through to the end of October. The River Wey is particularly quiet and beautiful in spring and autumn and there is no better way to enjoy an English summer than on the river—what are you waiting for?
