Hiring a boat is the perfect way to get out & explore Derwent Water. Hire should be booked online up to 12 hours before the start time. When choosing your craft you should think about who is going afloat (ages, experience, who is sharing boats etc.). Any group with under 16s in it must be accompanied by an adult on the water & you should ensure that you have an appropriate number of adults for the number of children.

We will give you a general briefing about where to go on the lake but you should only hire craft that you are confident you and your party can manage. If you would like advice about what to hire please get in touch to discuss options.

Day launching is only available to customers that have hire booked with us and must be pre-booked in advance. Please ring 01768772912 for availability and fees.

All hire must be booked and paid for in advance (you may cancel or amend your booking up to 7 days in advance). If we need to cancel we will refund all payments.
