Whilst most people welcome the current sunny, dry spell it has repercussions for our boat operations. 

Each year the Environment Agency (EA) allows us to abstract water from the Rivers Lox and Arun to keep the levels of the Wey and Arun Canal operable for boat navigation.  Sadly, but understandably, the EA has rescinded permission to abstract water from these rivers to prevent any environmental impact on the bio-diversity of those rivers should their levels be further reduced by our abstraction.

Also, due to a not untypical outbreak of algae which is having a serious effect on the fish life in the Wey and Arun Canal the EA has asked us to completely close some sections.  So far, we have managed to keep all but a few public trips running by re-routing, or curtailing the duration of the trip.  PLEASE NOTE THAT THE 12.15PM TRIPS ON SATURDAY 21ST JULY & SATURDAY 28TH JULY, AND THE 12.30PM TRIPS ON SUNDAY 22ND JULY & SUNDAY 29TH JULY WILL NOT BE RUNNING.

We are so sorry for any inconvenience or disappointment caused, and would urge customers to keep an eye on this website for further updates about public trips.
