Bude Rowing Boats

Classic Rowing Boat

Swan & Beetle Pedalo


Bude Rowing Boats is a family run business which has been running for almost 100 years! Established in the 1920’s we are still operating from the lower wharf on the beautiful Bude Canal.

We have many beautiful features to boast about here on the Canal. One being the sea lock which opens directly on to the Atlantic Ocean! Plus scenic views across sandy beaches to the open seapool.

Navigate up the canal pass peaceful marches, explore calm waters and surroundings.

Spot the many varieties of wildlife (Can you put some pictures of kingfishers, ducks and types of bird)??

We have a number of rowing boats which can hold up to 4-6 adults. These are perfect for exploring over a mile of water up to Rodds Bridge Lock. New to our collection are our Swans and Car pedalos! These are fantastic fun for the kids and big kids alike! They can all hold up to 5 people and are really stable  for families with small children. Canadian Canoes We have three Canadian Canoes which seat 1-3 adults or children. These are great to hire for a couple of hours or more with a pic-nic and ideal if you want to explore the whole canal!

Open Everyday from Good Friday to the end of September We provide buoyancy aids for weak and non-swimmers.
