Update 1/10/21. Sorry we have decided to close for the remainder of the 2021 season.

Someone will be onsite every day from at least 10am – 3pm for boat sales, berth-holders or if there are any special requests…

(We had intended to open this month but staff illness, supplier shortages, a terrible forecast, and rising lake levels have meant that we have taken the decision to close the site to the public and start getting ready for winter)

All bookings will be honoured – assuming the weather on the day is suitable.  Given the poor long term forecast we are not taking further hire bookings at this point, but we will take bookings / walk ins on the day when the weather is amenable, and boats / staff are available.

Sorry for any disappointment.


WELCOME TO NICHOL END MARINE

Set in a stunning and convenient location, Nichol End Marine lies on the western shore of beautiful Derwentwater, in the scenic Lake District. The lake is home to many delightful bays, beaches and islands, just waiting for you to explore; and is surrounded by mountains and valleys, with some of the best walks in the Lake District.

Our clients enjoy a happy, safe and relaxing environment with unrivalled scenery in which to enjoy their first or regular adventures on the lake.


Kayak Hire

Single, Double, Trio or Quad Kayaks are a great way to have fun, share family adventures or get fit while exploring the beauty of Derwentwater.

Paddleboard Hire

Gliding gracefully across the water or toppling in with much hilarity…paddleboarding increases in popularity every year. Multiple sized boards available.

Canoe Hire

Fast enough to explore the lake, stable enough to stay dry and raftable for family adventures, canoeing remains a favourite way to explore the stunning scenery.


Rowing Boat Hire

Is there anything more romantic than sharing a rowing boat and a picnic in stunning surroundings?

Sailing Boat Hire

Experience the joy of sailing across the water with the wind in your hair.

Cafe

When you need to refuel between adventures
