We went along to hire one of the small motor launches but, unfortunately, due to COVID related staff shortages, they were not in use. However, we purchased a ticket for the round the lake service on the big launch and it did not disappoint. Peaceful trip on a beautiful day with stunning views of the hills around.

I recently went of a boat trip with my elderly mother and our two dogs. The trip was lovely and very enjoyable with superb scenery. The staff were really helpful and did everything they could to assist us ( even kept my mum’s walking trolley in their building, to save taking it on the boat).

Excellent all round and would definitely recommend!

I enjoyed a very pleasant trip on Derwent Water, you can get off at any of the stops around the lake but we just enjoyed the ride in the perfect weather.

Really enjoyed the cruise along Derwentwater. It was very relaxing and great that you could hop on and off.

We booked a boat for our wedding day in July 2021. The owners were so friendly and were more than happy to book us the entire boat at the time we wanted.

We arrived at the lake early for some lake side photos before heading down to the launch. We were greeted by a nice young man who was waiting for us and our guests. He showed us to our boat and helped us board.

The cruise was a perfect addition to our day, we got to show our friends and family views of the beautiful lake district whilst celebrating our marriage. The crew provided complimentary wine glasses so we could bring own own drinks and raise a toast!

After the cruise, we went to the lake shore where our children enjoyed feeding the geese with the birdseed provided by the gentleman in the booking hut.

Thank you very much to everyone at Keswick Launch for making our day memorable.

The boat is nice, the staff seemed pleasant. The actual boat trip was a bit of a non-event. Quite a short uneventful trip, more like a public bus, get on and off as you wish, but nothing else. Some commentary of the surroundings would be nice, for £12.50pp this would be welcomed. The boat also only stopped at a limited number of stops. Don’t think we would do again, not really worth it unfortunately.

I was on the boat that was a different design to the others with the seats with the windows at the front and a covered up bit at the stern.
You are allowed to take your dogs. I enjoyed it and much faster than expected. No commentary which was a plus as I prefer to look and enjoy as opposed to listening to something the whole trip.
I enjoyed.

We checked the website before we left and planned a walk from Lodore. We were going to park in Portinscale and get the boat from there but the website said that jetty was closed so we went to Keswick instead. We paid £8 to park and went down to the jetty for the 12:30 boat but it never showed up. The sign by the jetty said that the next boat was at 3:30 so we came back again at that time and this boat also didn't show up. We have a 3 year old who we had promised a boat ride to so he was very disappointed. We felt like we wasted a day of our holiday driving to and fro as well as £8 for parking we didn't need. This happened to us previously as well when they reduced their service for COVID. Reducing the service was completely understandable but they should have let people know as there was no mention on the leaflets or website. I would strongly recommend phoning or speaking to someone at the booking office before planning any trips. DO NOT TRUST THE WEBSITE.

Friendly helpful staff! Really beautiful scenery! Stunning. Loved the boat trip and a leafy walk from Hawse End, passing Lingholm. Relaxing and beautiful. Good value for money too.

Today we had an excellent trip around the lake. Was wonderful to take in all the beautiful scenery. Staff all very professional and capable.
As opposed to other reviews we appreciated the peace and quiet without the need for a running commentary !
Some great photo opportunities en route.
