Keswick Launch on Derwentwater
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 21 July 2014

A lovely way to see the views. You can get off at various locations around the lake if you want to do some walking. No commentary on the normal cruises but there is on the evening ones.

Lovely trip on derwentwater. Comfortable boat, with wonderful staff. We were part of a tour and the lady welcomed us and was careful to ensure we alighted at the correct stop. Just the right length of time on the water as I've tried others that are too long. Plenty of stops and reasonable prices. Recommended.

We hired a Kewsick Launch boat on our wedding day to take the wedding party out onto Derwent Water for an hours trip.

The staff had allowed us to drop off champagne and beer the day before and they chilled it for us so we could use it for the speeches that we did on the boat.

Everyone loved the trip and the staff were fantastic. I would highly recommend it to anyone getting married!

Thank you!

We combined a launch trip with a walk around Derwentwater. This allows you to walk as long as you like and pick up the boat at intermediate stops. A wonderful walk and delightful boat trip

On a recent trip to the Lakes we headed straight to Keswick to get a boat trip in before checking into our accommodation at Ambleside.

There's some fine scenery from the water with minimal commentary so a map's a useful companion. It's also a good idea not to sit too near the front (unless you have children with you) as the seats get smaller towards the front of the boat and there is more spray flying up.

A nice way to kill an hour and see some scenery without having to walk or climb very far.
