The Lee Valley Boat Centre is a small friendly business with the intention of giving everyone the option 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.

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 of hire for whichever boat you are interested in hiring as they include information to keep everyone safe whilst on the river.
