Truly wonderful canal boat holidays

College Cruisers is a long-established canal boat hire fleet based right in the centre of the romantic, historic City of Oxford.

We have ten boats to hire for short breaks of three or four nights or holidays of a week or longer. We cater for special occasions such as birthday, hen and stag parties, and can offer bespoke canal boat holiday experiences including fully-piloted boat trips and one-way hires.

Watch our introductory video, then browse through our website to find out more about renting one of our boats for a holiday, short break or special occasion on the beautiful Oxford Canal.

And of course, you are welcome to phone, email or visit us if you have any questions.
