After a gap of over 15 years, rowing boats will be back on the River Wharfe in Otley on WEDNESDAY 16th AUGUST Chris Thornton is delighted to announce that as of noon next Wednesday, after three years of hard work and discussions, boats will again be available for hire, daily through the Summer Holidays and thereafter on weekends. Otley Boats will be open from 10am to 6pm every day (last hire at 5pm) and each boat will seat 5 passengers. Fares are £7/hour/person (6-16 year olds £4/hour and under 6’s are free). The boats can go from Wharfemeadows park up to Wharfebank Business Centre. The tradition has been brought back and hopefully for a long time to come.
Please check that the boats are running (weather, water level) on https://www.facebook.com/OtleyBoats/ before making the trip to Otley
