You can get on a boat regularly (every half hour during summer) for a 50 minute cruise round Derwentwater.  Including the main boat landings at Keswick there are seven stops around the lake to let you to get off, go for a walk, and pick up the launch at a later time. At times when there is very low water in the lake could cause some landing stages to be removed from the schedule.


you can have a guided evening cruises take place from mid May to mid September and include a soft drink or a glass of wine for the adults. There are also rowing boats and motor boats available for hire.


Stop off points are : Ashness Gate, LodoreHigh Brandelhow, Low Brandelhow, Hawes End and Nichol End.



You can stop at the main boat landings at Keswick and visit a very popular tea room with a large outside dining area for warm days, an ice cream and gift shop and good public toilets.


Feeding the ducks, geese and swans at the main stop is one of the best activities around Derwentwater, because of the large number of these very greedy birds throw them some feed or bread and sit back and watch the Chaos. A great thing for you to do when waiting for the next cruise.
