Enjoy cruising aboard 1920s launches with solar-electric power. A unique and environmentally friendly way to enjoy beautiful Coniston Water. A personal commentary by our crew complements your experience of this wonderful area.
Coniston Launch provides a ferry service to 7 jetties, including Brantwood, the former home of John Ruskin; discounted house entry tickets are available on board.
You can use the boat one way and then enjoy the walk back along lakeshore footpaths, or if you are feeling more adventurous you can explore the high fells.
Experience our special cruises which include 'Swallows & Amazons' for those who are familiar with stories; 'Campbells on Coniston' for a comprehensive talk about the speed record attempts from the late 1930s.
You may like to charter a launch for your private use in the late afternoon or evening.
