  1. Based in Charlestown, we offer a range of activities and courses. This is a short list to give you an idea of what we offer – Banana Rides, Boat Trips, Kayaking, Paddleboarding, Wakeboarding, Waterskiing, and Windsurfing. Come down and introduce yourselves.

  2. Sit on our comfy sofas or hang out at the bar, day or night; we have something for everyone! Charlies Boathouse opened two years ago after the success of our popular Coffee Shop, Charlies. We realised that something with the same comforting feel, like the coffee shop, that was open all day and night would be a great addition to Charlestown.
