Our Tips
- Hire a larger boat than you need as there’s more room to store your luggage 
- We recommend a ‘flying bridge’ as there’s a table and seating on the upper deck allowing you to dine alfresco
- Hire bikes with baskets so you can bring home baguettes and wine from your adventures
- Take or buy a pair of gloves to protect your hands going through the locks
