About Us

Our Mission is to help make boating on the Thames more accessible and our goals are to help get more people enjoying the water generally in a safe and fun way. 

Guy, our owner and founder, has been on a boat of some sort on the Thames and on the sea since the age of seven and has always been pulled towards the Thames in particular, being involved commercially with rentals, competitively with fixed seat rowing, for fun leisure with his family and altruistically with river based charities and clean ups.  

Missing the enjoyment of a previous river hire business he sold, Guy decided to set up again with Moose Canoe and SUP Hire at Bisham Abbey. He spotted the growth in the popularity and accessibility of Paddle Boards and launched Marlow SUP Centre in 2020. The new fleet of Zen Electric Motor boats is coming in 2021. 

There’s something magical about being on the River Thames, England’s greatest river. No day or experience is ever the same. Its an oasis to escape and enjoy being that’s on peoples’ doorstep. 

We promise to make your experience with us as relaxing, safe and fun as we can.
