Ahoy! Captain your own GoBoat and enjoy a unique adventure on London's canals.

GoBoat self-drive electric boats for hire from Merchant Square

This fun, self-drive boating experience lets you explore London from an entirely different angle – giving you access to a stunning section of the London canal network. Best of all the boats are electric so you enjoy London’s waterways without the noise and pollution that comes with traditional motors.

Hire your boat in Merchant Square and then from Little Venice you can choose to journey East to Camden, or West to Kensal Green and beyond. The boats fit eight people (furry friends are welcome too) and you can rent for up to three hours. No boating experience is necessary and you can bring your own picnic. Find out more and book.
