Come and join us aboard Iona the perfect way to cruise the National Trust’s unspoilt River Wey & Godalming Navigations.

Iona will be pulled by one of our heavy horses along both natural river and a canal section and through one of the oldest boat locks in the country.

Travel quietly in the time honoured way as generations of river boatmen have throughout history.

We do private charters to provide the ideal outing for clubs, organisations, senior citizens, wedding receptions & corporate events.

We can provide refreshments so please contact us to discuss your requirements.

We also run regular public trips.

All trips run from Godalming Wharf ( opposite Sainsbury’s in Godalming Town) between Easter to the end of September. These usually start at 2pm and last approx 2 hours and the maximum capacity is 46 passengers.
