Each boat is licensed and you will get full operating instructions before you head off on your broads adventure. You will be able to explore the local broads from Geldeston Lock upriver or down to Oulton Broad depending on the amount of time you have.
Fishing is permitted from boats when the engine is not running, this is to ensure the line does not get caught in the propeller.
Day boats can be hired for any period of time up to a whole day, 9.30am to 5.00pm.
