Used the ferry service from Hawes Head to Keswick, good reliable service. Need to bear in mind the ferry will only take 25 people due to Covid. This left a lot disappointed on the pier when we got the ferry, however I got the impression the staff organised another ferry to do an extra pick up. Only a 10 mins journey. Check timetable online at advertised times at the piers do not reflect when a pier is closed.

For a 40minute trip (advertised as 50minutes) that was unnarrated and at £11.50 per head, we considered this to be not good value.

The Launch is a great way to see the lake. However, it would be nice if there was some information provided regarding the landmarks and islands as you pass, even if a recorded message it would add to the journey. Hopefully on my next visit the other jetty’s will be open as only the main Keswick one and Hawes End are presently running due to flood damage

Took a trip on the cruiser during August after the first lockdown and the staff enforced Covid rules and social distancing. The trip was very good and we saw a lot of the landmarks on the perimeter of the lake.
