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.
We offer boat hire and have a cafe with beautiful views over the lake. Our clients enjoy a happy, safe and relaxing environment with unrivalled scenery in which to enjoy their first or regular adventures on the lake.
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.
Gliding gracefully across the water or toppling in with much hilarity…paddle boarding increases in popularity every year. Multiple sized boards available.
Fast enough to explore the lake and raftable for family adventures, canoeing remains a favourite way to explore the stunning scenery.
Rowing Boat Hire
From first date to family adventures, a rowing boat is a stable way to have fun on the lake whilst staying dry (unless it’s raining of course)
Sailing Boat Hire
Enjoy the pleasure of sailing across the water with the wind in your hair in a wayfarer, topaz or laser sailing dinghy.
