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 . 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.
