where to go now: GoBoat

DUE to popular demand, eco-friendly, electric boat company GoBoat has today announced the opening of its third London site, in the heart of the capitals financial district, Canary Wharf.

The new site will be open to the public from May 17 when groups of eight, in line with government guidelines, can charter the electric boats and set sail down around the Docklands. Guests can book for the easy, self-drive boating experience with the scenic Canary Wharf backdrop online, now.

The new opening has been fuelled by increased demand for GoBoat’s two existing sites in Paddington and Kingston, where guests have been taking to the electric picnic boats since 2017 when the company launched. Now guests can pack up a picnic, grab a bottle of prosecco and take to the open water on the Isle of Dogs.

Guests can choose between one, two or three hour trips and enjoy a leisurely cruise with the boats travelling at speeds of 4km/hour. The experience is both dog and child friendly with life jackets and buoyancy aids provided and no prior boating knowledge is necessary as staff give a full tutorial before setting sail.

GoBoat is the latest addition to London’s thriving urban hub adding to over 300 shops, cafes, bars and restaurants, one of the capital’s biggest roof gardens and the award-winning, free-to-visit, public art collection.

 

GoBoat ensures things are kept safe and within government guidelines:

  • Eight people may book a GoBoat from 17th May (current rules means six guests can book now at the Paddington and Kingston sites)
  • Every GoBoat is sanitized in-between each trip
  • Contactless payment only, booking ahead online is advised
  • Safe-distanced queuing system to keep guests apart
  • Contact-free check-in at the kiosk
