About Us

Who We Are

The Henley Boating Co was born from our love of the river Thames. Our qualified crew members enjoy the boating life and want to be able to share that with others. This inspired us to create The Henley Boating Co and offer private skippered charters to our clients. Our Boat Hire is none other than our 1968 Metropolitan Police launch can comfortably seat 10, so it is ideal for parties or corporate events. 

We pride ourselves on the personal touch we add to the boat rides we offer. Our tours can be personalised to include catering, music, and anything else you require for weddings, birthdays, corporate events, and festivals.

Why Us?

Our boat hires offer a special experience tailored to your needs and you will struggle to find many 1968 Metropolitan Police launches around, which makes for a very unique experience. 

Our qualified crew has worked and lived on the river for many years. We have a personal touch and give our passengers an insight into what the history of Henley and the river is all about.

Our pricing for boat hires in Henley is very competitive as we are truly lovers of the river and our only aim is to cover the costs of running the boat, whilst having enough left over for a pie and a pint.

You will see this when comparing us to the competition and other boat hires.
