We feel that no visit to the Lake District is complete without spending some time on the water, so why not experience England's largest lake, Windermere, on board our brand new BRIG Navigator. With seats for up to 9 passengers, there's plenty of space for you and your family and friends too. From experiencing the quiet bays on the Western shore to seeing some of the lake’s most impressive properties from the water.
Booked for the hour, our skipper drives whilst you sit back and take in the stunning surroundings. You may choose the hour tour, or for something quite special call us to discuss combining it with being chauffeured for lunch, afternoon tea or early evening meal at one of the waterfront hotels or bars.
Family and friends time on the RIB is always a treat with the opportunity to stop for jumping in!
Guests to Graythwaite Adventure can enjoy a variety of other awesome land and water-based experiences; 4x4 off-road driving, clay pigeon shooting, archery, axe throwing, air rifles, canoeing, kayaking, paddleboarding, bushcraft and more. Experience : Explore : Escape.
Upon arrival at Grubbins Point, please make use of our free parking before meeting one of our friendly team at our watersports hub. Following introductions, we'll head to the boat and kit you out with life jackets before getting on board. Typically, we journey to Bowness on Windermere whilst sharing some local knowledge and stories of the lake and return along the opposite shoreline. All you need to do is turn up, sit back and enjoy. As with all our experiences, this will be private for your booking.
