All-weather day boats available on the beautiful River Ant.


Come to Bank Boats and explore the Norfolk Broads by Canoe or Day Boat. You will be greeted by our fully trained staff, who will provide everything you need to enjoy your time on the Broads.

– Day Boats…our location at Wayford Bridge on the River Ant gives easy access to popular sites such as Hunset Mill, Stalham Staithe, Sutton Staithe and Neatishead, which all have their own features and attractions. Longer Boat rentals have the chance to reach Ranworth Broad, Horning and Potter Height.

– Canoe & Camping…contact us for information on overnight Canoe Camping Excursions and Locations. We can pre book and tailor a package to your specific needs.

– Canoe Day Hire…as you paddle away from Bank Boats Jetty you have the choice to turn left or right. Go left and you will paddle under Wayford Bridge, and onto a picturesque canal network offering one of the widest collections of Birds and Marine Life the Norfolk Broads has to offer. If you take a right turn you will be traveling along one of the most popular networks of the Norfolk Broads, which offers an array of Mills and Traditional Styled buildings along the way.

Our Canoe Hire services are renowned for the quality of equipment supplied from Canoes, Kayaks and Buoyancy Aids, and also our safety briefs given prior to all rental departures. Our location gives you a diversity of options from single day rental to the opportunity of overnight excursions and camping. The knowledge we have gained from our 28 years service within the industry, ensures we can give guidance and advice about Kayaking, Canoeing and the Norfolk Broads. We offer our canoe hire to all ages (within guidelines) and group sizes, which can be pre booked by contacting us direct at Bank Boats & Canoe Hire.
