Annual Boating Tickets

For those that plan to enjoy time on a self-hire punt, canoe or kayak for 3 or more boating days within the next year, this is unquestionably the cheapest way to do it.

Our Annual Tickets are created to open the river up for regular boating trips without breaking the bank. They make a fantastic present for anyone that enjoys time in Cambridge regularly, be it because they live, work or study here. 

Your Annual Ticket offers you a choice of boat to take out as often as every day for an entire year, with the exception of Christmas Day. So take this opportunity to enjoy time punting on the College Backs or alternatively try punting, canoeing or kayaking on the upper river whenever takes your fancy.

Additional Information

Annual Ticket holders are entitled to one free self-hire boat, seven days a week for one calendar year (except Christmas Day). Each session can last as long as all day. Boats must be returned before 21:00 or the closing time listed on station (whichever is earliest) on the day of the hire.

Tickets can be used to take out one of our traditional 6-person punts along the beautiful College Backs from our Mill Lane Punting Station. Alternatively punts, Canadian canoes and kayaks can be hired for adventures out towards the idyllic Grantchester Meadows from our Boatyard.

Choose between the Newton (for just you) or the Pepys (to share your boat access with a friend). Tickets are non-transferable. Users must take their Annual Ticket away with them on return of the hire boat. Dual user Annual Ticket holders will need to arrange when and how to swap the ticket between themselves.
