There’s something quite special about being on England’s largest lake, and to see the surrounding landscape from the water provides a completely different perspective. Why not allow us to share the experience with you, on board our BRIG Navigator. With seats for up to 9 passengers, there’s plenty of space for you and your family and some friends too. Booked for the hour, your skipper takes the helm whilst you sit back and enjoy the ride; from experiencing the quiet bays on the western shore to seeing some of the lake’s most impressive properties, the tour will include many stories and facts, old and new.
Guests to Graythwaite Adventure can enjoy a variety of other awesome land and water-based experiences; 4x4 off-road driving, archery, axe throwing, clay pigeon shooting, bushcraft, canoeing, kayaking and stand up paddleboarding. Land-based activities are available all year, watersports April to October. Experience : Explore : Escape.
Upon arrival at our Watersports Site, please make use of our free parking before meeting with one of our friendly and experienced instructors at the watersports hub. Following introductions, we’ll kit you out with life jackets before jumping onboard. Typically, we journey from Graythwaite Estate along the west shore up to Bowness on Windemere, to Belle Isle and back along the east shore. All you need to do is arrive, sit back and enjoy. All with all our experiences, this will be private for you and your guests (up to 9 of you) as we never mix bookings. Bookable as a 1-hour experience but please feel free to ask if you’d like longer.
