You need no experience and no licence to drive any of these boats. Full tuition by instructors before you leave the boat’s are suitable for first time hirers. You can order food provisions in advance and they will be waiting for you on arrival. You could spend 2 week’s on the 3 lake’s and never see it all.
I have been on board these boat’s and they are so big and very nice inside, it must be lovely sailing around the lake’s slowly on a summer’s day and then calling in for a break and a drink on one of the holiday island’s on the lake’s.
Fishing is a very big thing on the lake’s, people from all over Britain and further come to fish here. There are many day boat’s for hire for the fishing or just a day out on the lake’s.
