Self Drive Boats

Self-drive Motor Boats are available to rent from Tuckton Tea Gardens, Wick Ferry and Christchurch Quay.

They are rented on an hourly basis as they are only allowed on the river and harbour, with exit to the sea strictly forbidden. Each boat takes up to 8 passengers and these smaller boats give access to some areas which the ferries do not see.

Self drive motor boats cost £30 for an hour and £20 for half an hour.

Also available at Tuckton Tea Gardens are rowing boats.

The Rowing boats carry a maximum of 4 people and are also rented on an hourly basis at £17 per hour.


"One of my favourite places to go and relax ... with a beautiful view out the caff window of the river and boats .... loads of other stuff to do down there in summer too"
