Lake Adventures

Luxury motorboat hire

With sixteen stunning lakes, a trip to the Lake District wouldn’t be complete without a day on the water. What an opportunity to spend time with family and friends, away from busy pavements and bustling coffee shops. This is the perfect opportunity to see the region’s breathtaking scenery from an entirely different angle.

Our lake adventure team can tailor packages to suit all ages and abilities. From half day canoe trips to full expeditions, or just a day of fun games in a kayak, we will be able to tailor the day to suit you.

Or if you fancy something a little different, try stand-up paddle boarding, or SUP for short. SUP is one of the fastest growing sports in the UK and is perfect for the whole family.

For the ultimate day on Lake Windermere, our very own lake cruiser, Tintin II, is available for hire. Tintin II is a Maxima 720 retro and can take up to ten passengers*. Moored at our private boathouse, Tintin II is available to rent by the day or for the duration of your stay (subject to availability).

Our range of activities include:

  • Canoeing
  • Kayaking
  • Stand-up paddle boarding (SUP)
  • SUP Yoga
  • Tintin II

For our Lake Adventures, all equipment is provided and is cleaned and rotated according to official Covid guidelines.
