Launch services departing Bowness stop at Brockhole and Windermere Jetty (museum) before continuing to Ambleside. Southbound is direct Ambleside to Bowness.

Times normally operated by our 'steamers' Swan, Teal or Tern, may sometimes be substituted for a smaller vessel for operational reasons. Prices and timetable information are subject to change without notice.

Sorry, all our services are temporarily closed

The Board of Windermere Lake Cruises had previously taken the decision to suspend all cruises from end of business on Sunday 22nd March.

However in light of the government decision on March 20th , we have taken the decision to suspend all cruises and self-drive boat hire immediately until further notice.

The whole team at Windermere Lake Cruises continue to monitor the situation closely and further updates will be published on this website when necessary.
