About Us

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, these 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 16 mile long ship canal.

The 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 and are made primarily out of HDPE plastic which is fully recyclable at the end of the boat's life.

We currently operate a fleet of 2 boats ('Sparky' & 'Dynamo'), and have ambitions to expand over the coming years.
