College Cruisers is the place to go with all your boating dilemmas.  We hire narrow boats for holidays and we also provide services for the local canal community and visiting boaters. Located just above the Isis Lock and near the visitors moorings we are a good stopping point on the Oxford Canal for entering or leaving the River Thames upstream or down. So do call in and say hello, we are the canal hub for the Oxford waterways and are happy to help with our practical local knowledge.
