The round trip gives exellent views of the surroundings and a good way of visiting spots around the shore. The Lower Brandlehow landing stage is closed for repairs, but this was not advertised in any way and I only found out when asking to be set down there. This would have been very inconvenient if I had been walking there... More

Great views of the fells and mountains from the lake. Be careful if you sit at the front of the boat as you will be sure to get wet at some part of the journey

Lovely lake to sail on, but info and customer service leave a lot to be desired. The landing stage we wanted was closed, which would have been helpful to know in advance as we were meeting friends (we were told it was closed for repairs when we were on the boat). The last boat back from Keswick was quite early... More

We had a brilliant day on the lake and really enjoyed hopping on and off the boats which operated a very efficient service

The weather turned very damp during the trip and visibility was quite poor (no fault of the staff of course). It would have been good to have sights of interest pointed out en route.

This boat trip is well worth it. Views of Derwent Water from the boat which travels around the lake and stops at various spots so that you can hop on and off when you want. If you go to Keswick make sure that you take the launch.

With 7 stops and a choice of indoor or outdoor on the launches. Great price and a chance to see more of the surrounding area. Use a hop on hop off ticket as well as a 7 day ticket. Great way to access walks

Lovely trip around the Lake Derwent on a clear Spring day. Would have been useful to have some sort of comment about the lake. Chance to take pictures and lovely scenic route with places to stop-off if needed. Took about 50 minutes in total. Price I thought was slightly expensive for the short boat trip but was lovely on the... More

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
