GoBoat: 2-hour electric boat ride

Picnic on a boat with your dog?! Sounds perfect!

This 2-hour electric boat experience is certain to float your boat! Get full rental of a boat that can accommodate up to 8 people and cruise down Birmingham's historic canals!

You'll get a full tutorial on how to drive the boat so that you can be the captains of your own ship! Each boat is dog friendly and has a nifty table at the centre so you can bring your picnic and your pup!

In this experience, you will get:

  • Groups of up to 8 accommodated
  • 2-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

Your host is a canal aficionado and knows all the best routes to take.

Take the route to the South and you'll be drifting through leafy Edgbaston and the iconic Gas Street Basin. Go to the North, and you'll see the historic port, graffiti murals and amazing views of the city.

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