 Boat Hire

Please book in advance (see menu on the left). Please book a changing / briefing slot as well as the boats you want.   

We still have some types of boats to add for August but more are being listed every day.  Prebookings are available upto 8.30ish on the morning in question.   After this time you need to give us a ring and we will squeeze you in where we can.

All hire is for 2 hour sessions, if you want a longer session if you book the same type of changing room, and the same combination of boats for morning and afternoon then we can join the bookings together.  This means you will get 5-6hours for the price of 4.

We are not taking bookings for shorter sessions - it takes a lot of time to clean the boats and kit after use so it dosent really work.  BUT, if space is available on the day we will acommodate this with a last minute booking where we can.


Launching is strictly by prior arrangement, and only for early and late launches.  Between 9.30am and 5pm we have lots of our hire customers on the beach and slipway and are not allowing launching (to help maintain social distancing).


We are unlikely to be able to squeeze in any larger boats, but may be able to fit in a couple more boats upto 20ft in length.  Please ask for details.
