Punting in Cambridge
Traditional Cambridge Punting
Scudamore's Punting Cambridge first introduced pleasure punting to the city in the early 20th century. Remaining true to Jack Scudamore's original vision, we work to ensure that the River Cam can be enjoyed by all, offering traditional boating services to visitors and residents alike.
We pride ourselves on our warm welcome, unrivalled service and have designed our services around you. Treat yourself to one of our award-winning Cambridge tours or explore the river yourself on one of our self-hire boats.
Visit Cambridge and experience its historic waterways for yourself! We are at your service every day, except Christmas Day.
Winter 2020/2021 Update
Tier 4: we are temporarily closed and will reopen once restrictions are lifted. We plan to reopen our Upper River canoe and kayak rentals and College Backs self-hire operation further into 2021.
We've adapted our operation to ensure safe social distancing. Further safety information can be found here.
