Laker Cruises, rowing boats and self-drive otor boats on Derwentwater

Tel: 017687 72263


Location: Lakeside, Keswick


Keswick Launch runs the Derwentwater lake cruises which depart from the boat landings very near Theatre by the Lake (about 10 minutes walk from the town centre). They run alternate ways around the lake stopping at various jetties around the lake edge. You can travel part distance (ideal for walkers) or take the full cruise which takes approximately 50 minutes.


There are fascinating guided tours where you will learn about the history and geology of Borrowdale Valley (read our History of Borrowdale) and there are the famous Father Christmas Cruises over the Xmas period!


Please visit the website for a timetable and map showing the lake shore jetties.
