Inland Day Hire Holidays

Day boat hire is popular way to get on the water. Whether you are looking for a romantic day out with your partner, want to try something new, celebrate a family occasion or a hen or stag party, there is something for everyone - here’s some ideas:

Boat Day Hire Ideas

  • Hire a narrow boat on a canal and experience the adventure of mastering a lock or two - a great experience for the whole family
  • Step aboard a day boat on the Norfolk Broads and catch up with all the wildlife
  • Blast across the Solent on a Rigid Inflatable Boat (RIB) – just the thing for blowing the stresses away
  • Take to the River Thames, one of our most famous rivers, on a cruiser, electric launch or even a rowing boat
  • Get fit and get close to the water when you hire a canoe or kayak
  • Find out why so many people just live to sail when you explore the sea or a loch on a yacht with friends, don’t go home too early the sunsets are magical!
  • Feeling like a real treat? Why not hire a “James Bond” style power boat. You really can charter one of the luxury motor yachts which appear in the latest films
