Accessible Canal Boat Trips

Welcome to CanalAbility

We are an award-winning charity dedicated to providing the facilities for people with a wide range of disabilities, health conditions or anyone experiencing disadvantages, to enjoy boating on the river on our specially adapted canal boats.

Embark on a delightful 4-hour day trip, immersing yourself in the beauty of the Essex and Hertfordshire countryside while exploring the River Stort . You can try your hand at steering the boat and operating the locks, or simply unwind and watch the flora, fauna, wildlife and the world go by.

Our two purpose-built, fully centrally heated and accessible broad beam boats enable everyone to take a full and active part in the boating experience all year round.
