Special cruises on Coniston
In addition, to their scheduled services, they organise these special cruises on Coniston Water:
Swallows & Amazon Cruise
This is an ideal trip and great fun for those who are familiar with the Swallows & Amazons stories. Arthur Ransome used many places around Coniston Water to populate the imaginary lake of his books and the Swallows & Amazons films. Enjoy the 90 minute cruise as you discover places including Wild Cat Island.
Campbells on Coniston cruise
This cruise offers a comprehensive talk about the speed record attempts on Coniston Water from the late 1930’s to the mid-60’s, and also covers more recent events. The 90 minute cruise follows the route of the heroic Campbells, concentrating on Donald’s last, fatal bid to better 300mph on water.
