Love canals?
Then you’ll love Skuna boats.

Skuna used to be known as HotTug now they have changed their name to reflect from where they originally saw the HotTugs in Denmark.

Skuna HotTugs

With the Skuna HotTTug boat being so close and down in the water it makes you literally feel at one with the surroundings according to Frank. There is 1800 litres in the tug and is kept hot at 38 degrees Celsius 100 degrees F) via a underwater wood burning stove.  The tug is constructed from wood and fitted with glass-fibre reinforced polyester. The stove is made of stainless steel and has a double-walled pipe. The Skuna HotTug is powered by a built-in electric motor making it very quiet and reaching a speed of 3 mph.

The Skuna HotTug is a unique 90 minute experience (75 minutes on the water) that you can ever have in London whilst sailing the London waters within a swim costume whilst having fun with friends (holds 7 people) and drinking drink within a limit of course and the driver has to remain sober.

They are located in two different locations:

  • Angel
  • West India Quay/Canary Wharf

BBQ Boat

They now have have BBQ Boats which can be hired for 1hr 45 minutes out on the water. Their BBQ Boats can hold groups of up to 10 people. All you need to do is bring is your food and drink (plus for those warmer days, your sun cream!). They provide you with all the essential BBQ equipment (plates, cutlery, napkins and cups are also available for £1 pp).

The BBQ boat is perfect for birthday celebrations, corporate events, family days out or just a fun get together with friends, our BBQ boats operate 7 days a week, daytime and evening, from the historic West India Quay dock at Canary Wharf. All from only £15 per person.
