For that special day out on the Oxford Canal with friends or family, what could be more exciting than getting ‘afloat’ on one of England’s finest canals. OXFORD CANAL BOAT HIRE. You do not have to spend a fortune to enjoy a beautiful day afloat on the Oxford Canal. ‘Comet’ is easy to operate and the design of the boat allows it to be operated in all weathers. How about an evening ‘cruise’? Bring the family, friends and have a party along the way, we will steer the boat while you enjoy yourselves.
Twyford Wharf Narrow Boats have built their own luxury narrowboat (barge) for either Day hire or a Short break.  ‘Comet’ has an open viewing area at the front, has a cooker, electric toilet and shower. The boat is easy to handle and if you are a beginner, not to worry, as instruction will be given. ‘Comet’ can take up to 12 persons if you have the necessary helm’s certificate, otherwise we can provide you with a ‘skipper’ for the day. If you do not have a helm’s certificate then the maximum number of passengers is limited to 6 (including the driver/skipper).
