Activity Highlights:

We are London’s leading canoe hire provider. We believe in creating unforgettable experiences on London’s waterways. From Easter until October 24th, our services are available every weekend and on Bank Holidays.

So request your preferred time slot and number of canoes, and we will confirm your perfect day out with your friends, family or partner!

On The Day

On the day of your adventure, our dedicated crew will meet you, gear you up, and guide you through the basics on dry land before you launch in.

Here’s what to expect:

  • We provide all necessary equipment, and while you might get a splash or two, most people stay mostly dry.
  • Each hired boat must have an adult on board for safety purposes.
  • Our canoes are comfortably located at our floating base in Hackney Wick, which is the perfect place to relax and refresh after being out on the water.
  • Our services are suitable for up to 3 people depending on experience. If you’re new to canoeing, we recommend starting with two people to a canoe as it is more stable.
  • Dogs are welcome on board with you!

To help you make the most of your day, we have lots of route ideas for you to choose from and handy maps to show you the way.

Our canoes are suitable for up to 3 adults, or 1 adult & 3 children, making them a stable and beginner-friendly choice.

You can specify how many you would like to hire and for how long on the booking form.

Why Choose Us?

Established in 2012, our mission has been to transform London’s waterways into a source of joy and adventure for everyone. Since then, we’ve introduced over 45,000 people to the exhilarating world of paddlesport in central London.

We actively collaborate with local organisations to enhance and protect our waterways and we’re proud founders members of two community action groups, The Lower Regent’s Coalition and Friends of the Cut.

Our floating hub in Hackney Wick serves as the home base for our canoe fleet and doubles as a cosy floating bar & café. With its intimate indoor cabin and a heated roof terrace overlooking the water, we’re ready to welcome you aboard before or after your trip.

Frequently Asked Questions

We have a number of hubs across East London for paddleboarding, kayaking and canoeing.

Our 2/3-person canoes live at our floating bar in Hackney Wick. The closest station is Hackney Wick.

All our craft are very stable, so capsizes are rare, but you should expect a few paddle splashes.

Not for canoe hire! All our equipment is beginner friendly and our team of instructors will take you through the basics before you set off, as well as letting you know the rules of the canal.

To hire any equipment from us, you must be able to swim and have adequate water confidence to keep yourself and other users safe. Capsizes are rare in our boats, but remain a risk – you need to be able to get yourself and your crew to safety should things take a soggy turn.

Our Canoes are spacious for two adults, but will seat up to three. They’re great for families as they can also accommodate two adults and two small children, or one adult (with paddling experience) and three children.

Our Canoes will comfortably accommodate either two or three people, so we can accommodate odd or even-numbered groups.

Dress for the weather on the day and bring an extra layer just in case.

It’s also worth packing:

  • A hat
  • Suncream
  • Water
  • Snacks

Your buoyancy aids, paddles and a waterproof barrel for smaller valuables will be provided.

We don’t have a minimum age, but do ask that children have some water confidence and can be fitted safely into a buoyancy aid. Parents or carers must take full responsibility for their children at all times, and there must be an adult in each boat. We have buoyancy aids which will generally fit little ones right down to around 6 months old.
