We booked the trip through their facebook page which was incredibly easy ,with really good communication from Ben who is the lovely young man that deals with the hire. We hired 3 x 3 man boats, one for two adults,and the other 2 boats for 2 adults and 2 children..It cost £50 for half a day and £50 deposit per boat which is well worth is as we were sailing from 1.30 to 5pm. Ben asks you to arrive 30 mins prior so he can explain how the boat works and give a safety talk, Life jackets are provided. The river was so calm and peaceful but there was a lot of weeds towards the end so we moored up for a picnic then made out way back. A very enjoyable day for children and adults alike.We will be doing it again.

Me my husband and two daughters 7 & 8 Hired a boat on the 14th August, we hadn’t booked just popped by on the off chance. This wasn’t a problem and Ben the lovely guy who works there had the motorboat ready in half hour. This was our first time out on a river or in fact a boat. We booked for 3 hours @ £60 with a £50 deposit. After a good introduction we were left to our own devises. You can only travel to a certain point in the river which was reassuring for us as first timers. We took a picnic and drinks but didn’t manage to stop off so just sat in the boat. Life jackets with whistle’s are provided as well as the phone number on the inside of the boat. Be sure to ring in advance as instructed by Ben before you get back so he can help you out of the boat. This we did not do and looked like something out of a carry on movie trying to get the boat back. This actually makes us all giggle and we have brilliant memories of our first time boating.

Brilliant day on a lovely stretch of peaceful river. Lots of nature and fun things for the kids to spot along the way. We did a half day tour with about 1hr15 ride up to a dead end, lovely place to tie up the boat and have a picnic. We did a little fishing there it was great fun. We spent around 1 hour there then set off back. It was absolutely scorching on the way back, i advise to take plenty of water/drinks as its a long way back for little ones. We paid more attention to the water on the way back as it was low tide and the weeds were quite bad, we had to pay attention to the boat being directly in the middle of the river. It paid off as we saw a big snake swimming across the river which was brilliant, my daughter thought it was great and talked about it all day. After we returned the boat we popped into the put across the bridge which has a huge field for kids to play and plenty of benches. It also has ice-cream parlour which is open sundays. Pretty expensive there though but great way to end the day.

We very much enjoyed our half day hire with Beverley Boat Hire. Despite being experienced leisure boaters, this was our first opportunity on the River Hull. The rental experience was painless, with a friendly greeting, explanation and handover of the boat plus outboard. One thing we didn't expect was that Beverley Boat Hire is a cash-only operation, so we recommend being prepared for this. Prices are on the website. The boat we rented was very tidy and clean, with a reasonable power of outboard for the size of the boat, meaning progress was relatively quiet. (A lot of boat rental organisations fit the smallest they can get away with to minimise any damage, which means the outboards are running flat out and therefore very noisy.) One suggestion for improvement might be to supply some waterproof cushions as an option, since the seats are not padded at all. The Hull itself is tidal, but this caused no problems at all. Upstream of Tickton is very tranquil, mostly with reedy banks and the occasional farmhouse and moored boat to be seen. There were plenty of birds, and we spotted a Kingfisher twice. Bring whatever food and drink you might require, since we didn't spot anywhere to stop to get anything like that. Also, there is no shade on the boat, so sunscreen is sensible: even on cloudy days, with fair skin, it's easy to get burnt on the water. Overall, a lovely afternoon on the river. Recommended for nature and water lovers.

Unfortunately the costs of taking cards would add a significant amount to each hire, we have this under review and are looking for a more effective way to take cards. Unfortunately the merchants services operator fees are high on a small volume of business such as ours, we prefer to offer value for money.
