The guys on the barge are just amazing- so friendly and they ended up being part of the hen party! They were very funny and made our experience even better! Excellent idea for a hen and what a wonderful place to sightsee! Thank you for making it a special day!

The 2 guys running these cruises are simply ace - they were jollily helpful with my disabled son, they joked, they chatted, they brought us teas and coffees, they gave loads of information and they treated all their passengers like family. We were a group of 7 from old to young, taking my disabled son for a day out. He... More

You won't regret it but book in advance and park up at the Brecon theatre pay and display about 50 yards away. Dave is very friendly and will show you the ropes. Fantastic scenery and great fun.

This is a good way to spend a couple of hours, or so, with an informed captain and crew. Very friendly and helpful.

Climb on board, sit down and relax whilst the friendly crew take you for a trip on the scenic Monmouth and Brecon Canal passing through a lock and stopping on a viaduct overlooking the beautiful river Usk. A wonderful way to spend a couple of hours. At busy times it is probably best to book in advance.

The boat was well appointed with seats at table, refreshments, hot and cold drinks available. The tannoy guide became a bit swamped by the passengers and children around talking but we chatted to the boatman who had lots of knowledge and was very cheerful. It was a leisurely way to spend a few hours , very nice.

Just returned from Brecon after a wonderful cruise with Dragonfly. The crew were most professional and helpful throughout the 2.5 hours journey. Lovely refreshments available at a very good price.Scenery was stupendous and we enjoyed the stop at the aqueduct.Many ducks around dodging the long boat,bluebells and celandines amid the newly sprouting trees. Glorious weather as we meandered along,so relaxing.... More
