Norwich Day Boat, Picnic Boat & Crusier Hire Charges

Hire a day boat, exclusive picnic pod or cruiser from our Norwich base on the Norfolk Broads and you're captain of the ship. Our self-drive day launches are affordable from just £60 per day for a boat for up to eight people in low season. That's truly great value. If you want more comfort, choose a day cruiser from just £80 half a day in low season. For a low-cost overnight experience, Try Flamping.

The table below shows our price ranges throughout the year for our range of boats for hire for the day from Norwich.

Please note that a £50 cash deposit is due on all day hire bookings held for the duration of your hire.
