Kenavon Venture

The Kenavon Venture is a purpose built public trip boat. lt is 60 feet long and 10 feet wide and has spacious seating for up to 40 passengers (currently restricted to 20 passengers owing to Covid-19 restrictions). It is operated by volunteers of the Kennet and Avon Canal Trust. A licensed bar, refreshments and a toilet are available on board.

If the trip is a catered trip, such as one of our successful music evenings which include a fish and chip supper, numbers are restricted to 36 (currently restricted to 20 owing to Covid-19 restrictions), any more makes for an uncomfortable trip!

Please be aware that food and drink can not be brought on board. Drinks and snacks are available from the licensed bar on the boat (card payments only).

Due to Covid Restrictions we are limiting the number of passengers on board to 20 (5 groups of up to 4). All bookings for trips must be made online and there will be no facility for the sale of tickets at the Wharf before the trip.

All passengers must be able to board the boat without help from the crew and we are afraid that dogs will not be allowed on any of our trips.

    Help Us

    The Kenavon Venture is crewed by volunteers. We are always looking for new volunteers and no previous experience of canal boats is required. Full training to all crew roles is provided for volunteers and is you would like to see what is involved then please contact us.

    How to find us

    The MV Kenavon Venture is moored on the wharf at Devizes, close to the Kennet and Avon Canal Trust museum (SN10 1EB). Pay and Display public car parking is available on the wharf. Please ensure you buy enough parking time as trips can overrun when there is a lot of traffic on the canal.


    The Kenavon Venture is operated by volunteers for the Kennet and Avon Canal Trust. The Kennet and Avon Canal Trust operates three other Trip Boats. For further information about these, please go to K&A Trust website and follow the links. Kennet and Avon Canal Trust
