GoBoat: 1-hour electric boat ride

Experience is now closed for the winter and will reopen in Easter 2023.

Ahoy sailor! This electric canal boating experience is one for all novelty-seekers, explorers, adventure lovers, and those drawn to the siren call of the water.

In this experience, you will drive your own fully electric boat around Birmingham's historic canals.

What better way to spend an hour? Pootle around with your friends in tow and see the city from a whole new perspective! Count us in!

These electric boats are designed with a small table in the centre, so come prepared with plenty of tasty treats for a wonderful picnic on the water.

Your host, Goboat, can accommodate groups of up to eight. These rides are also dog-friendly, so you can bring your best pal along for the journey! We're wagging our tails with excitement!

In this experience, you will get:

  • 1-hour cruising along the canals

  • Life jackets and buoyancy aids

  • Full tutorial on how to drive the boat

  • Advice on which routes to take

  • Amazing views of the city

This experience is designed for beginners so no prior knowledge (or captain's stripes!) is required.
