Buffet Cruise

Live music with a freshly prepared buffet

Enjoy a freshly prepared buffet, a relaxed atmosphere and a unique viewing point for some of the Lake District's most beautiful scenery.

Our resident band 'Trickle Charge' will be playing a selection of Latin rhythms, mainstream jazz and tasteful pop as you cruise the entire length of Windermere. This popular two and a half hour cruise includes a quality two course cold buffet, a fully licensed bar (includes draught ale and lager) and a dance floor later in the cruise.

Access & Facilities

Disabled Access

This cruise is operated by one of our ‘steamers’ and offers wheelchair access.
The boats can be accessed by a ramp from the pier to the main cabin which is under cover and is on the same level. Unfortunately the toilets are down a number of steps but we do have toilets on Bowness Pier. If you have any specific access requirements or questions, then please call us to discuss.

Concessions for Disabled Customers

If a disabled adult in your group needs a carer, then the carer travels free. For more information about this scheme and to see all the terms and conditions, please read our company policy for disabled passengers.


On-Board Facilities

Toilets are available on all our ‘steamers’ and launches (check for disabled access) but not our traditional launches. Many of our vessels have licensed bars and/or tea bars. So whilst enjoying the marvellous panoramic views, why not treat yourself to a tipple of your choice.


Conditions of Carriage

Our services are provided in accordance with our Conditions of Carriage which can be found on our homepage under ‘About Us’.


No Smoking Policy
