Self-Drive | 6 – Seater

Our 6 seater self-drive boat hire aboard the Whaly 435 is the perfect way to experience the Thames. A great activity for family days out and group outings alike, self-drive boat rides give you the freedom to explore the river.

With an hour or two onboard the Whaly 435, where the river takes you is completely up to you. Our team is there to advise and give ideas, however, as the self-drive option of the Henley Boating Company, ultimately the route is down to you.

Our boat hires are perfect for you to relax, enjoy the Thames Valley countryside and spend time with the people you care about. Our Captain, Jim Sneddon, will walk you through how the boat operates and what the safety instructions are. He will also share his top recommendations on river routes and places to visit.

We also do events on Henley Regatta, Henley Festival and rewind Festival, for more information on our services and booking, do not hesitate to get in touch.

N.B. The pricing on this page does not include Henley Regatta, Festival, or Rewind Festival.
