Even in beautiful sunny weather with stunning views of Rutland Water this cruise is let down by the automated audio commentary. Such a shame because the crew were friendly, professional and immaculate

Two very personable staff "Captain" and his "Mate" with a pre-recorded narrative of certain interesting aspects of Rutland Water. Very much worth the money.

This was a lovely way to spend 45 minutes at Rutland Water. The commentary was very informative. The atmosphere on the boat was lovely. We sat on the top deck and enjoyed a drink from the bar.

One family ticket which is £28. If one of your children is less than three years old then he/she will go free of charge in which case the charge would be £19 for two adults + £6.50 for one child.
