About Us

We are a long-established canal hire fleet based right in the centre of the romantic City of Oxford. Our parent company is registered as “Funafloat”, and that is exactly what we want you to have. The video above explains more about us, our philosophy, and why you should choose a canal boat holiday on the Oxford Canal.

There are nine boats in our fleet ranging from 2 berth up to 12 berth, giving something to suit all needs and budgets. We take pride in making sure that your chosen canal boat is spotlessly clean for your  holiday.

Your holiday will begin with a comprehensive handover of the boat, we will show you everything that you will be doing while out alone on your boat. We will show you pictures and explain the workings of a lift bridge, chat about the route, the do’s and don’ts of canal life and finally a trip allowing you to steer the boat with one of our team on board. The trip will take you and the crew through Isis lock, where you will either learn new skills or brush up on old ones. You and your crew will work the lock under our supervision, turn the boat around and travel back through the lock ready to begin your journey.

The boats are very well maintained with everything in working order before your arrival to ensure that you take home with you happy memories of your canal break with College Cruisers on the Oxford Canal.
