1 HOUR CRUISE
PERFECT FOR A SIGHTSEEING EXCURSION
We'll depart from our moorings at Windermere Marina Village and head South toward Lakeside, or North toward Ambleside. You choose, or we can help you based on what you want to get out of the experience.
Heading North we'll pass the majestic Belle Isle, then Bowness, and head towards White Cross Bay. This is the widest section of the Lake and offers stunning scenery - headlined by the fabulous Langdale Pikes.
Alternatively, heading South we'll take in the eastern shore and pass Ramp Holme and Storrs Hall, and head toward Beech Hill Hotel and Tower Wood before circling back along the western shore where we'll pass Ling Holme. This tends to be a less busy route than heading North and offers some equally stunning scenery.
Conditions permitting we may be able to cruise over to one of the secluded bays so that you and your guests can sit back, and enjoy taking in the beauty of the surroundings.
We'll provide you with soft drinks and a selection of savoury nibbles. Or you may prefer some more elaborate catering, which we can arrange for you.
ISLAND TOUR CRUISE
APPROX 1.5 HOURS
The ultimate Lake experience. Indulge yourself and your guests in a once in a lifetime Windermere cruise!
A lot of people don't realise that there are many islands on Windermere. Most of these are named ___‘holme’ which is a local dialect word for ‘island’, which has its origins in the ancient Norse language.
Typically we'll start out by cruising from Marina Village across to the western shore and take in the far side of the fabulous Belle Isle and the "Lillies of the Valley". Further north there is Thompson Holme and Haws Holme, all equally majestic in stature.
Emerging from Belle Isle we'll head further north around Hen Holme, Lady Holme and Rough Holme - one of which has a very interesting and curious heritage which our Skipper will tell you all about!
We'll then head back towards our starting point via the eastern side of Belle Isle, passing Bowness Bay and Cockshott Point. All the while you just sit back and take in the stunning surroundings, and enjoy the peace and tranquility that this beautiful Lake offers. We'll do our best to tailor the trip to exactly match your requirements so that this is a truly magical experience for you.
Please let us know if you have anything specific that you'd like us to try and arrange for you, and let us know if it's a special occasion such as a proposal, birthday, anniversary, etc.
Also included in this luxury experience are soft drinks and a selection of sweet and savoury snacks and nibbles.
Enjoy Afternoon Tea at Storrs Hall - served at this iconic Lake District hotel with stunning grounds.
Enjoy delicious catering on board - a selection of savouries and sweet things just for you.
Whether you opt for the snacks or upgraded catering please let us know of any special dietary requirements or allergies.
We're not licensed to sell or serve you alcohol, but (subject to our prior approval) you're welcome to bring your own.
Always drink responsibly. Please note that at least one member of the party must be over 25.
Please arrive 30 minutes before your allocated departure.
Please advise if any member of your group has any requirements for support with access to the boat or if anyone has any relevant medical conditions.
Your safety is paramount. Everyone will be provided with life jackets and we'll run through a safety briefing before we cruise. Please wear (or bring) something warm and please wear sensible shoes because the jetties can be slippy - so no heels I'm afraid!
Give us a call first if you're not sure about anything - we're always happy to help so you can get the most out of your wonderful Lake experience.
