Few things in life are better than drifting on a dinghy in the sun. The sound of water lapping somewhere near your head, the sensation of moving effortlessly across the surface. Realistically there's only one thing that could improve the experience. And that's the smell of meat.
Thank you then, to the geniuses at Skuna who have created the BBQ Boat aka BBYOB (bring your own bangers), thereby making the water-sausage dream a reality. Book here and you will soon be bobbing around West India Quay, near Canary Wharf, while grilling pork chops (or, I suppose, halloumi) with your pals.
The boat is available to hire seven days a week, from £150 and holds up to ten people. Each trip is one hour 45 minutes long. Cups, cutlery, napkins and the rest are provided for an extra £1 a person. The captain’s hat however costs another £7.50. Would be rude not to.
The BBQ Boat can be found at West India Quay, E14 4AL. Book your outing here.
