These boats must be booked in advance. We also offer hourly hire Electric Boats, Rowing Boats and Pedalo’s from Easter to the end of the October. These small boats CAN NOT BE PREBOOKED.

The Lee Valley Boat Centre is a small, friendly business with the intention of giving everyone the chance of experiencing the River Lee. From passenger boat hire for larger groups, to small rowing boats for up to 4 persons we aim to provide a means to travel along the River Lee at an affordable cost. The boats are available from the boat centre in Broxbourne with the exception of the passenger boats, which are boarded at the mooring slightly further upstream. In the interests of safety all children under the age of 16 years will have to wear a buoyancy aid which we supply and fit free of charge prior to boarding one of our boats (exception being the passenger boats which have their own safety management system on board). Dogs / pets are permitted on our day boats but unfortunately not on any of our small boats (electric, rowing or pedalos) or passenger boats where food is being served. The boring part - Please read carefully our Terms & Conditions (Day Boats, Small Boats) of hire for whichever boat you are interested in hiring as they include information to keep everyone safe whilst on the river.
