Tameside Canal Boat Trust operates the trip boat “Still Waters” from Portland Basin, Ashton under Lyne.
The 51-seat boat “Still Waters” offers public boat trips from Portland Basin from Easter to October at weekends & Bank Holidays, including some week days during the summer school holidays.
Please check our recent News posts for days of operation. We try to run public trips as above if crew are available and if there is not a private charter. We do not run public trips on Mondays, when the Museum is closed (except on Bank Holiday Mondays).
The boat is manned by volunteers. If you would like to get involved please contact us.
