Sailing across the lake on a row or motor boat requires no previous experience as the talented guides at Windermere Lake Cruise will give a 10-minute demo before you set off. Here you’ll learn the simple manoeuvres needed to successfully drive the boat, and you’ll be provided with life jackets. Dogs and picnics are both welcome on board, and both are guaranteed to make your day out twice as fun.
All of the boats available carry up to six people and can be hired for as little as one hour up to half a day (4 hours). For each extra adult in the boat a charge of £6 is added and under 16’s always board for free. Hiring a Luxury Boat costs £33 per hour, a Motor Boat costs £26 per hour, and Rowing Boats cost £16 an hour and are only available in the summer. Make sure to pre-book online to receive early bird discount and to avoid disappointment.
