The Boathouse has a range of boats depending on your group size. Larger boats can accommodate up to 5 people. Smaller boats will hold a maximum of 3 adults. The Boathouse staff will provide life jackets and advise on the right type of boat. Please be aware that public safety is paramount and if we do not have a small enough life jacket to fit your child, regardless of their age, they will not be able to go out on the boats.  For guidence our smallest life jackets usually fit children aged 3 or older. 

If you have any questions or would like to arrange a group booking please contact us.
