Dalton's Drift is very popular and is normally booked well in advance, so if you are intersted book early, however you could always get in touch on the off chance and who knows you may be lucky!

If you do hire Dalton's Drift, you will be instructed by the bosun on how to operate it.  The bosun will take you on a trip up the river to ensure you are fully competent on using the controls and understand how to navigate the river and its locks. Only when the bosun is happy that you can manage the barge will he sign it over to you along with the inventory.
