Where will you go next year?

Where will 2023 take you?

Book early, so you don’t miss out!

Is 2023 the year to spread your wings (finally!) and fly off to a boating vacation in Europe?

Why not explore the famous Canal du Midi, beautiful Burgundy or pretty Brittany in France? Or maybe discover magical Venice in Italy or the royal River Thames in England?

Or if you'd prefer something a little closer to home, the UNESCO-certified Rideau Canal in Canada awaits!

Been boating before?

No two boating vacations are the same. We operate in nine different countries and 17 different cruising regions and each offers up something different in the way of local culture, scenery, cuisine and things to do. So if you think you’ve ‘been there, done that’ – you should go boating somewhere different in 2023 and experience the waterways from a fresh perspective.



Never been boating?

Your interest must have been piqued – or you wouldn’t be here. So now let us show you why boating along our beautiful waterways should be your next vacation to remember. If you’re getting tired of the usual vacation homes or beach resorts year after year – then you should try a fresh perspective in 2023. Come try it with Le Boat.

  Le Boat was a phenomenal experience beginning to end. From the training, to the routes, to the boat itself, we felt it was a luxury vacation for a reasonable price.
