The Keswick Launch Company runs services clockwise and anti-clockwise round Derwentwater, and its the perfect way to return to town after walking on the fells, or visitng the falls at Lodore. The staff are very friendly and the views from the boat are spectacular. The company also hires out classic rowing boats so that you can explore the islands and... More

Excellent for touring Derwentwater . Buy a ticket, which is valid all day, and get on and off at any jetty around the lake . Ideal for getting dropped off at any popular walking spots or various hotels for a drink and lunch .Well recommended for the friendly and helpful staff.

No Christmas would be complete without our annual trip on the Santa boat trip - not disappointed this year either - lovely festive atmosphere and kids loved Santa all on the stunning lake that is Derwent Water, what more could you ask for.

The trip on the lake is ideal if you want to get off and go for a walk and then be picked up again after your walk. The trip itself is relaxing and very enjoyable plus the spectacular views. Staff are great and friendly.

A trip to the Lake District wouldn't be complete without a tour of at least one of the lakes and a boat trip was a wonderful way to get a different perspective of the scenery and the gorgeous houses dotted around the lakeside. The trip took 50 minutes for the full lake tour although you could get off at different... More

We went on a lovely trip around lake Derwent on an old fashioned launch. Very calming and under £20.

Went on the Keswick Launch today round Derwent Water, excellent experience and value for money. Beautiful autumn views and a great way to see the scenery. However I'd be interested to know if the assistant on board is there to just tie up the vessel and sell tickets? He sat a metre from the place where an old lady, children,... More
