No boating experience is necessary as we provide full safety instructions, a sailing guide to the lake and life jackets for everyone on board. If you get into trouble at any time, our safety boat will come to your rescue. Choose a boat to suit your day from a romantic traditional row boat or a historic powered wooden boat. Our modern cabin boats have a handy sliding cover to shelter you from the elements and are extremely easy to drive. All of our boats carry up to 6 people and can be hired from 1 hour up to half a day (4 hours). Our popular hire times are below
