(Devizes)

The Kenavon Venture is a wide beam boat seating up to 45 passengers operating from The Wharf, Devizes (adjacent to the Trust HQ and Museum). The boat does not have the capability of accepting wheelchairs and it is necessary for passengers to be able to embark and disembark using steps. There is storage space at the wharf for wheelchairs. Well behaved dogs are usually welcomed on our boat. Experience has shown that other passengers occasionally are unhappy about the presence of a dog. For this reason, we cannot promise that your dog will be able to come aboard. Passengers with dogs will be asked to wait until other passengers have boarded and we will then consult other passengers and make a decision on whether your dog may travel with us. If our skipper decides it cannot, we will refund your ticket.. The nearest SatNav postcode is SN10 1EB.

Every Saturday, Sunday and Wednesday from the 1 April to 29 October 2017. Also an additional trip on Thursdays at 2.30pm during the summer school holidays
