Camboats

Founded in 2004, Camboats are Cambridge's premier Narrowboat Cruising operator. We run popular trips along the Cam and out to Ely on the Great Ouse to both residents and visitors alike. There are regular timetabled public tours and also private bookings on request.
Camboats offer a unique narrowboat tour of Cambridge taking you along the river past the historic college boathouses.  There’s no need for speed, we take a relaxing cruise to soak up the history and watch some of the wildlife, even on this urban section of the river. If you don’t fancy a ride on an open punt, or enjoyed your punting experience so much you want to explore the river further – try a comfortable seat on our custom built traditional style narrowboat – “Rosie”.
Suitable for all ages and abilities. You are going to have a great time as an independent tourist, romantic couple, family group, community organisation, school class or even a hen party.

The cruise experience:
 
· a unique view of Cambridge from the river
· listen to some interesting local stories
· learn about the history of the River Cam
· commentary conducted in English 
 

Camboats has friendly crew who love to listen and are ready to answer your questions.
Located close to Jesus Lock during the week, just a few minutes stroll from the Tourist Information Centre and some deparetures at The Plough at Fen Ditton.  Check our website for more details on our events, and bespoke cruise activities. Pre-booking for some tickets and events is available through our website and updates on river conditions.    www.camboats.co.uk


Make sure you have clothing to match the weather conditions, the boat is covered, however we try to open the sides as much as possible to allow you to feel at one with the river and its wildlife. Life jackets and blankets are available on request.
Fancy something a little more exclusive - Camboats run bespoke river cruises and activities throughout the year, such as Valentine’s Day, Mothers Day, Easter, and Christmas. Visit the website for full details and celebrate with a difference onboard  “Rosie”.
Special Occasions: Celebrate in style with a private cruise.  Select a carefully crafted package for your Birthday, Hen Party or even Wedding Reception entertainment. See our website for details.  Keep an eye out for our themed cruises (Pirates Cruise, Wildlife Tour etc)
Corporate Events: We offer a unique combination of a relaxing river cruise with team building activities and other training opportunities.
About the River Cam  -  The river starts as a small stream in Ashwell, Hertfordshire, then flows northwards to Cambridge. The main navigable section of the river for powered vessels starts at Jesus Lock, the only traditional manual lock on the river.  Leaving Cambridge as the river flows past Milton it reaches the first of two sluice locks managed by the Conservators of the Cam.  Then it flows out into the flat area of the Fens and joins the Great Ouse, to then reach the sea at the Wash on the Norfolk coast.
The very existence of Cambridge relied strongly on the river for trade and commerce during its early development, in fact the very name of the city is “Cam Bridge” literally meaning a bridge over the river Cam. Today it is more about recreation with rowing teams, pleasure cruisers and fishing.
