Without doubt, the most magical way to discover the Broads is by boat. The waterways of the Broads are safe and easy to navigate, with over 125 tranquil, lock-free miles to explore. So much of the Broads can't be reached by road, That days-and nights-afloat become a real adventure, with hidden places, perfect fishing spots and close encounters with wildlife at every turn. Once afloat, you will understand the charm of this wonderful hidden area and its unique wildlife. We have a superb range of boats available for hire by the hour, half day or full day. All prices are per boat and include fuel, buoyancy jackets for all ages and sizes, full tuition (no experience required) and car parking (subject to availability).
