GoBoat is the fun self-drive boating experience. You are the captain, you choose the route. With no boating experience necessary, gain access to the unseen side of central London as you charter the waterways
Your new boat experience in the heart of London
The new site is due to the public from May 17th when groups of eight, in line with government guidelines, can charter the electric boats and set sail down around the Docklands. However guests can book for the easy, self-drive boating experience with the scenic Canary Wharf backdrop online, now.
Picnic on the Thames Waters, the ultimate dream
The new opening has been fuelled by increased demand for GoBoat’s two existing sites in Paddington and Kingston, where guests have been taking to the electric picnic boats since 2017 when the company launched. Now guests can pack up a picnic, grab a bottle of prosecco and take to the open water on the Isle of Dogs.
Guests can choose between one, two or three hour trips and enjoy a leisurely cruise with the boats travelling at speeds of 4km/hour. The experience is both dog and child friendly with life jackets and buoyancy aids provided and no prior boating knowledge is necessary as staff give a full tutorial before setting sail.
The perfect outdoor activity to do in family or between friends this Summer!
GoBoat is the latest addition to London’s thriving urban hub adding to over 300 shops, cafes, bars and restaurants, one of the capital’s biggest roof gardens and the award-winning, free-to-visit, public art collection.
GoBoat guests can choose between 1, 2 or 3 hour journeys.
Begin your voyage from Bellmouth Passage, relish the freedom to explore the beautiful London Docklands and look up at the spectacular architecture. For 2 or 3-hour boat rides, why not moor up and treat yourself to a picnic.
Your journey begins at Merchant Square, head east on the vibrant Regent’s Canal through Little Venice, the 249 metre Maida Hill Tunnel, Regent’s Park and London Zoo to Camden Lock.
From the Riverside Walk mooring next to Kington Road Bridge, you can charter your own electric picnic boat upriver past Hampton Court Palace to Molesey Lock, and downriver to Teddington Lock.
