Windermere Lake Cruises is a dog friendly attraction

Bring your 4-legged friend on all our cruises and self-drive boats

dogs are welcome on all of our boats, steamers, launches and traditional wooden launches

Scheduled Cruises

Dogs travel for free on all Windermere Lake Cruises' scheduled cruises and they even get their own ticket. All we ask is that they are well-behaved and kept on a lead at all times. 

Please note that:


Dogs are welcome on rowing boats and motor boats that you drive yourself

Self-Drive Boats & Rowing Boats

Dogs are welcome on all of our self-drive motor boats and rowing boats hired from Bowness and Ambleside but they must be kept on a lead at all times. Sadly some dogs have been lost by jumping into the water after swans/wildlife.


Share Your Pictures

We love seeing pictures of your 4-legged friends on our boats! Share your pictures on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter using #windermerelakecruises and we'll pick the best to appear on our website.
