Welcome to our new online booking system for transit on the Crinan Canal.

Please register your vessel using the form below. Once registered, Scottish Canals will be in touch regarding payment for transit. No bookings are finalised until payment is complete.

Please note that booked vessels will transit in convoy at 08:30am, and so we ask that you please arrive at the sea lock the evening before or early morning in time for the lock in.

We aim to get through in a day subject to traffic management, weather conditions and water control. Boats not booked or which miss this time slot may not be guaranteed passage in a day and may be put on standby for the next day.

For a speedy transit or for single handed crew, please book a private pilot. Details of private pilots can be found here.

Boats with private pilots and abled crew are not limited to the single accompanied day transit, however registration is still required.
