Canal Cruise on the Madeline Trip boat

Enjoy a Canal Cruise on the Madeline Trip boat. Madeline runs from Hollingwood Hub and was built by Eckington School and launched in 2014. It has a galley for serving hot and cold drinks, a toilet and large opening windows all-round the boat.

A big cruiser-style stern makes getting on and off the boat easy. There will be access to the passenger cabin down a short flight of steep steps with a large front deck.

Your trip will take you down the beautiful Chesterfield Canal – so you can cruise and enjoy the lovely scenery. You may even spot some wildlife as you cruise along!
