Wakefield District Scouts own and run two narrowboats - Jubilee Venture and Scouting Venture.


Both are available for hire for mornings/afternoons, evenings, days, weekends and longer by Scout and Guide groups, individuals/other organisations (at the discretion of the Narrowboat Committee), with Wakefield District Scout Group bookings having preferential rates.


Please be aware that to hire our boats you or a member of your party require a 'Scout Association Adventurous Activities (Narrow Boat) permit or Girl Guiding equivalent' which typically takes 4 to 6 training days to achieve, and for overnight stays a 'Greenfield Category Nights Away Permit' is also required.
