COVID-19 Special arrangements

All passengers are requested to maintain social distancing at all times and keep alert to help prevent the spread of Coronavirus. Thanks for your understanding and your help in helping us keep everyone on board safe.

Ticketed Seating

You must sit on the seat you have been allocated within the booking process. This strict layout of coloured seating allows us to maintain the safe social distance between all passengers. This cruise will either be on a steamer or modern launch.

Disabled Access

Wheelchair users are strongly advised to call us to confirm which vessel is operating on which service as not all of our vessels are suitable for wheelchair users, particularly in poor weather conditions. On board toilet facilities on all vessels can only be reached by means of the stairs, however there are adapted toilets at Lakeside, Bowness and Ambleside Piers.

Our most wheelchair-friendly vessels are ‘steamers’ (marked in black on the timetable) that can be accessed by a ramp from the pier to the main cabin which is under cover and is on the same level. Our other vessels have limited access for wheelchairs but sometimes can be accommodated on board. Please call us to discuss your access requirements.

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.
