The Jungle Queen is designed to cater for parties of up to 47 people and is the perfect solution for hosting a variety of events. Our team has been running cruises up and down the Lancaster Canal for the past 15 years and understand what makes a great cruise. Whether it's a trip to view the scenery, to educate or just to party, the Jungle Queen is a venue that you'll never forget. Our crew are friendly, helpful and aim to make it a day to remember.  


'Ever wanted to sail a canal barge?' Here's your chance, our captains welcome any budding sailors what ever the age. When it comes to organising your event we'll be as involved as you want us to be. We tailor each of our private cruises to suit your individual needs. If you'd like us to decorate we will, if you need it to be a surprise, no problem. Even if you fancy something totally out of the norm, just ask and we will try our best to make it happen.
