Are there life jackets available?
Yes, we have a selection of life jackets for both kids and adult in different ages. If you are a bigger group that all requires life jackets, please check with us before hand so we can make sure there are enough jackets for your whole group. Also, the cushions in the boats have floating capacity and can be used as life buoy.
Do I need a license to drive a BookaBoat boat?
No, you do not need a license. Everyone who is 18 and older can drive a BookaBoat boat. It is important, however, that you follow the rules which apply on the water. The rules can be found here on our website, on a sign at our jetty and on the back of the map that is available in every boat.
Can someone sail the boat for us, a captain?
We know that some people feel a little bit insecure about driving a boat on their own for the first time. But it is easier than you might think! Sometimes we have staff at our jetty and you are more than welcome to stop by and make a small test-drive in advance of your booked trip.
Unfortunately we have a limited amount of time available to act as captains for trips. In some very special circumstances we might be able o help out, like for a weeding or a funeral where relatives want to scatter ashes.

What is the minimum duration of a boat trip? What do you recommend?
1 hour but we recommend 2 hours. That is enough to take a trip on the canal around the inner part of town, and e.g. pop into Suellshamnen. If you want to see all that Malmös canals and harbour has to offer, we recommend at least a 2 hour trip. Do you want to spend time relaxing on the water, moor somewhere to enjoy drinks or a picnic, or just take it easy, 3 hours is the perfect choice for you. Most people book 2 hours.
Are there any additional service costs?
We do however offer extra add-ons to your trip to make it even greater. Most of these add-ons can be added when you place your booking, otherwise contact us.
How do I book several boats for one trip?
You can only reserve one boat per booking when you book as an individual. To book several boats for the same occasion, you have to place one booking per boat. You can use the same name and details for all the bookings. If you want to check that there are enough boats available, please contact us before you place your bookings. You will also find a view of the current availability at any given date at the bottom of our starting page on this site.
Companies and organisations can book several boats at once through our Group booking option. PLease note that other rates and terms apply.
How can I pay for my booking?
For individuals we accept payments by credit cards (VISA ad MasterCard) and the Swedish payment method Swish. Since our jetty normally is without staff we can only in exceptional cases accept payment by cash. Sometimes during peak season we have staff at our jetty that can charge bookings by card terminal or cash. Please contact us to learn when the jetty is staffed.
Companies and organisations can pay by invoice. Please note that other rates and terms apply.
