Please note, while restrictions put in place to respond to COVID-19 are easing, there may be some changes to business-as-usual to keep workers and visitors safe. Please contact the business for the most up to date information, including opening times and social distancing measures.

Take time out from the hustle and bustle and enjoy the fresh air on your very own Scandinavian electric picnic boat on Lake Burley Griffin. Rent a GoBoat for a special occasion, a quiet picnic, or an outing with a group of friends.

Enjoy a unique adventure, exploring Canberra's famous lake and all its waterside attractions from the comfort of your own Scandinavian-designed boat. Each booking is for the exclusive, private use of one picnic boat, so you can chart your own course!

You can be your own captain, with no boat licence or previous boating experience required. Operation is simple, and the boats are powered by quiet, smooth electric motors with no exhaust or noise to worry about.

There’s no minimum age, and GoBoat is a relaxed and safe way to introduce kids to boating. Life jackets and safety equipment are all provided, and even pet dogs are allowed on board!

GoBoat is a very affordable, premium activity, and you can bring up to 8 people on board. It’s the perfect activity for small groups and social distancing, but please book ahead online to avoid arriving at the same time as other groups.
