Holidays

Are DART holidays for me?

Welcome aboard – we’re delighted that you’re keen to learn more about our canal boat holidays. The boats are crewed by trained volunteers. Each vessel is wheelchair accessible, specially equipped and suitable to accommodate people with a wide range of disabilities. Your family, friends, carers and even your assistance dog are all welcome. If it suits you better, you can opt to hire a boat just for your group. The only rule is that there should be one disabled person on board.

There are plenty of opportunities to help the crew to operate the boat. Our holidays for the disabled are also fun holidays! You will also be invited to join in activities on board and come with us for shore excursions at our stops along the way. Click here to find out more about our activities.
