Keswick Launch information
Derwentwater is one of the Lake District's most attractive lakes, and remained a lifelong favourite of Beatrix Potter. The lake jetties are a short stroll south of town, next to the fields of Crow Park. Boats putter out to landing stages at Ashness Gate, Lodore Falls, High Brandlehow, Low Brandlehow, Hawse End and Nichol End. Departures run clockwise and anticlockwise; you can get off and walk to the next stage if you wish. Single fares to each jetty are also available.
There are six daily boats that run from March to November, with a couple of extra afternoon sailings and a twilight cruise in summer. There are only two sailings a day in winter.
Rowboats (£12 per hour) and motorboats (£27 per hour) can be hired next to the launch jetties.
