Gloucester Boat Hire Ltd puts you at the helm with self drive boat hire on the Gloucester & Sharpness Canal.
Located in the heart of Gloucester, our boats are the perfect way to get a different perspective of the historic docklands, pass under the working swing bridges, and explore the wild and beautiful countryside further down the canal.
Our boats seat 8 people and can be booked throughout the day for 30 minutes up to 3 hours.
All of the boats are fully electric, primarily solar powered, and are made primarily out of HDPE plastic which is fully recyclable at the end of the boat's life.
Mediterranean style picnics can be pre-booked and will be packed on board for your trip.
We currently operate a fleet of 2 boats ('Sparky' & 'Dynamo'),but have ambitions to expand over the coming years.
* Please check the activity's website for opening times.
