THE ULTIMATE CANAL ADVENTURE BEGINS (full tour)
We’ve moved aboard a Narrowboat! And, even if you don’t know what a Narrowboat is, you’ve probably seen one on a postcard or in a movie. Because there are hundreds of these long, colorful, steel hulls lining the canals that run all through Great Britain.
Living aboard a Narrowboat is a huge bucket list adventure and we’re so excited to share it all with you! Over the next couple of weeks, we’re going to be experiencing life on the canals as we navigate locks, bridges, tunnels, and aqueducts.
Lucky us, we have The Canal King himself as our Narrowboating mentor. If you are a Cruising The Cut fan, then you already know we’re off to a good start!
Cruising The Cut
David Johns is loved by many for his videos, including us. But let me tell you, he is even more fun in person! We didn’t give him enough kudos in this video (we gush about him at the end of the trip) but he was a huge help in making the whole trip happen including being our taxi driver. Next time…because there will be a next time, we’ll get a bigger boat and try to convince David to come with us for the whole experience.

Hire Your Own Narrowboat
ABC Boat Hire was David’s recommendation, and he was spot on. They agreed to host us and the whole experience was smooth as butter. They have locations all over Britain so you can pick up at one marina and drop off at another, make a loop or whatever your heart desires. Aside from food, the boat had everything we needed for the trip including training on how to operate these long narrowboats.
No previous boating experience needed! So this is truly an adventure for anyone and by the end of this series, I bet it will be on your bucket list too (if it wasn’t already).
