The HotTug brings something hot and steamy to London this summer

A crowdfunding campaign has launched with the aim to raise funds to bring the world’s first floating hot tub to central London. Set to launch this summer, and utilising some of London’s most scenic canal areas, the HotTug will be an experience like no other, for all ages.


The HotTug is a 3.8m x 2m wood fired floating hot tub, heated at an invigorating 38C of fresh water which ‘HotTuggers’ can operate by themselves. The boat is powered by an electric engine and will be stationed in Old Street this summer at the ‘HotTug House’. The experience, which lasts for 90 minutes is truly unique and is set to be one of the most fun and unusual activities in London.


Available to enjoy for a hot date of two or up seven friends or colleagues, the experience will cost £220 per session. Whether it is a relaxing sightseeing tour or a celebratory birthday party, the HotTug aims to bring a new lease of life to all gatherings, work dos and dates.


When founders Tommo and Jack felt they had exhausted London’s ping ping bars and bottomless brunches, they set about finding something that had never been done before.


Tommo, cofounder of HotTug UK said “I first set eyes on The HotTug in 2012 and knew that it was something that Londoners would love. The inner pirate in me is so excited to be launching a new business on a boat and I cannot wait to bring this incredible experience to my home city.”


The boys eventual aim is to bring The HotTug to sites across the UK & Ireland to unearth a completely new viewpoint of a city.


The crowdfunding campaign on Crowdfunder ( offers the opportunity for people to be the first to experience The HotTug at an exclusive discounted price of £140. The campaign launched on June 6th and will run for 5 weeks with the aim to raise £10,000. Londoners have gone wild for the campaign, which is already over 50% funded within the first week.


This unique and truly different experience is guaranteed to be one of the hottest tickets to get hold of in town. So don’t miss the boat on this truly oarsome adventure!
