Choosing a Boat Trip on Your Hen Weekend

If you want to get away from it all on your hen weekend, have you considered taking to the open water on a relaxing boat trip? You and the girls can leave all your day to day cares behind you on shore as you sail away to find some peace of mind.

Imagine that feeling of blue waters all around you, the sun shining and a gentle breeze and light spray from the waters in your face. If that doesn’t sound like a perfectly serene hen weekend then we just don’t know what does!

Different types of boat trips

Canal boats

Boat trips can come in different forms and you will be able to have some choice about what kind of boating experience you would like to have on your hen weekend. In many places in the UK, you can arrange to sail on a canal boat and travel up and down the beautiful canals of England. This lets you see some magnificent countryside at a leisurely pace, and you may even like to hire one for the entire weekend and sleep on the boat at night!

There are different locations in England where you can travel on the canals so wherever you are based it shouldn’t be too difficult to find some canals nearby. The benefits of hiring a canal boat for the weekend means you have your own little floating apartment. You can spend time on board relaxing and watching the world float by or you can stop and hop off to take in some of the beautiful English countryside or do some hen weekend shopping in the nearest town! If you don’t want to hire one for the weekend you can just take one out for a day trip and stop somewhere for a bit of lunch and some drinks before returning.

River boat Trips

The other main type of boating trip for hen weekends is a river boat trips. These are very common on such large famous rivers like the Thames and many companies offer wither the hire of your own private boat, or the ability to buy tickets to take a trip on an already planned excursion.

This is perfect if you are looking to break up your day with a relaxing activity. You can either take a boat trip during the day, and often you are also able to enjoy a buffet lunch or even a sit down meal and some drinks as you watch the sites slowly pass you by. Alternatively, if you’re looking for something livelier, you can take a boat trip in the evening and many companies offer music or live entertainment so you can have your hen night experience out on the open water!
