The best way to see Lake Windermere is to get out onto the water itself. Whether you wish to take a tour or be in charge yourself there are many different options available to anyone who comes to visit. You can be self-sufficient and hire a canoe or rowing boat or perhaps take the more relaxing option of a private motor cruise or hop on board one of the steamers that depart from Bowness Bay on a regular basis. For the more experienced sailors out there you can always hire a sailing boat or for those looking to get involved with the sport lessons are always available.
