Rowing Boats

Why not hire a skiff for an hour or two. Take some exercise or practise your rowing skills by hiring one of our rowing boats. This popular pastime is available from the Canal Basin between April and December. A leisurely row from Chichester to Donnington and back will take about two hours. Every member of the family will enjoy the experience and be able to take a turn.

The canal has been a popular angling venue for many years. It is well stocked with a broad range of fish and it also boasts some specimen carp and pike up to 30lbs in weight. It is always fishable, there is no closed season. Both pleasure and competition anglers can be accommodated and the venue offers very good access to those with limited mobility. The canal holds good stocks of roach, rudd, perch, common, crucian and mirror carp, bream, tench, pike and eels plus some dace and chubb.
