One Hour City of York Motor Boat Hire
Step up to the role of Captain, for a one hour self-driven boat ride around the picturesque city of York. Accommodating up to eight passengers, the boat hire makes for the perfect opportunity for a group of friends or family to embark on an aquatic adventure together. The motorboats are really easy and safe to drive, so there's no need for previous boating experience. Simply receive some brief skipper training with an instructor, before heading out on the water and exploring the city from the River Ouse, the same river that brought the Vikings to the beautiful city. Don a life jacket and leisurely take in the city sights, including the Millennium Bridge, Clifton Bridge and the York Minster.
