ROW BOATS, KAYAKS, CANOES, ELECTRIC BOAT

Important Information / Updates

We are now CLOSED for the 2019 season.

Thank you to everyone who has hired a boat or had an ice cream, we look forward to your visit next year.

We do not take bookings for rowboats, just turn up and hire

We are open for rowboat, kayak, canoe and Electric Boat hire, 7 days a week 10am until 6pm from March until the end of August. During September and October we are open  every day 10am until 5pm except Wednesdays. Please call or email to check if you are not sure.

If you just fancy 'messing about on the water' you can hire a rowboat, kayak or canoe by the hour or if you're feeling fit you can hire a canoe or kayak for a half or full day (Tuesdays, Wednesdays & Thursdays) On your return you can reward yourself with an ice cream or refreshing cold drink from our on-site kiosk open from 10am to 5pm daily.

Our kayaks are sit-on kayaks. These kayaks are more stable and easier to paddle. Why not give them a try!

Slipway for boats:

If you want to slip your own boat into the canal we make a charge to cover car parking. £5 for kayaks, canoes and rowboats and £10 for motor boats. Gates are open at 10am and shut at 6pm so you need to be back around 5:30pm. You will need a license to use your own boat on the canal and will need to show it to us before slipping in.

One-Way trips

If you fancy the idea of a 'mini adventure', why not try our one-way trips by canoe or kayak. (Maximum 6 single kayaks or 2 double and 4 single kayaks)

The way it works

  • Set off from our boatyard in Odiham around 10am on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays only.
  • Travel to either
    • The the Canal Centre at Mytchett which is 15 miles.
    • Ash Lock which is 12.4 miles
    • Fox & Hounds in Fleet which is 7 miles
  • Bring food and drink with you, a good picnic point is at Crookham Wharf which has tables or stop at the Fox and Hounds which is on the canal and has good moorings for the boats and you can grab a drink at the pub and maybe some hot chips.
  • We will collect the boats on our trailer and bring the driver/s back to the boatyard to collect the car.
  • There is the option of a night camping at Mytchett Canal Centre Campsite If you choose this option you can leave your camping kit and clothes etc. in your car until you collect it.
  • Price is £90 per person for 8 hour kayak hire and collection and £50 per person for 4 hour kayak hire and collection, camping is extra (follow this link for Mytchett Campsite prices)

If you know someone who enjoys the water, why not give them the gift of boating. Our vouchers can be used for any type of boating; kayaking, rowing, canoeing and narrowboat day hire or holiday hire.

 

    Dogs are very welcome on rowboats!
