Boat hire - Out of hours

Usual boat hire opening is 11-4pm on weekends and school holidays, between Easter and October. Outside of these times, boat hire may be arranged by booking in advance, subject to a minimum fee.

Boat hire out of hours

Use this option to arrange boat hire outside of our usual opening times.

We only take bookings for boat hire outside of normal opening times. (Weekends and School Holidays 11am-4pm, Easter to October) Whilst we are open, simply turn up and hire a boat - we'll be open as long as the wind allows.

If you would like to arrange boat hire at another time, please check availability using our calendar and book via the system.

Be sure to check the weather forecast before making your booking as no refunds will be provided for cancellations with less than 24 hours notice.

Available to hire are:

Rowing Boats for up to 4 people

Open Canoes for up to 3 people

Sit on top kayaks for 1 or 2 people

Select your ideal combination below from the available options. Get in touch if you require more than four boats. Some boat types are limited and, to keep the system happy, tandem kayaks and open canoes should be selected as boat one and two :).
