If you’ve always wanted to be master of your own boat, then this is your chance. Thanks to the crew at GoBoat in Kingston, we’re giving away a two-hour boating experience for up to 8 people. Ready to set sail? Aye aye captain!
Channel your inner Jack Sparrow – now scale things down a just a little – and captain your own boat up or down the River Thames! GoBoat is a self-drive boating experience for couples, families or groups of friends – and you’re holding the rudder so you can choose your own route.
No boating experience is needed, the GoBoat ground crew will teach you everything you need to know before you set sail. And if you’re worried about the driving, I’ll give you the heads up – the boats don’t go fast, so there’s zero chance of going wrong. You may even be overtaken by a swan!
Choose your own route: head down river towards Teddington Lock up-stream to Hampton Court Palace, passing Raven’s Ait and Thames Ditton Island along the way.
It’s a fabulous family day out that can even include the four-legged members of the family, but is also a really cool way to meet up with friends. The seating in each boat is arranged around a large picnic table which means you can pack your own picnic – Champagne optional.
And the good news is, you won’t have to shout to be heard over a noisy motor – these clever babies are powered by an electric motor connected to a battery, so they’re practically silent. It also guarantees maximum peace and tranquility on the river. Aaand relax!
Sound like fun? (Trust me, it is!) Enter below.
