Have a question?

Do I need to pre-book?

Yes. We’ve introduced an advance booking system for our self-hire punts. This system enables customers to book a specified time slot to help us manage visitor numbers and maintain safe social distancing.

What if I just turn up?

If you haven't booked before you arrive you’ll be asked to do so via our website or over the phone with our bookings team before we're able to let you onto our premises. For those that unable to pre-book we may have walk-up availability at the kiosk at our standard rates.

Can I change my booking time?

Yes. The time and date of your booking can be changed up to 12 hours in advance. Just follow the unique link in your e-booking confirmation where you can select a new date and time.

How many people can go in a punt?

Currently, all of our self-hire punts are limited to 6 people (5 passengers + 1 punter). We allocate punts based on availability and group size. We try to give our larger boats to groups of 6 people where possible.

What should I wear?

We suggest that you wear something you don’t mind getting a little wet. Dress for the weather so bring along a mac if the forecast is for rain. You need to make sure you have the correct footwear, which is non-slip, stable, can’t fall off easily and offers protection to your toes and heel. Please do not punt in bare feet or wear sandals, flip-flops, slip-on, leather-soled or high heel shoes.

Are dogs allowed?

Yes, we are decidedly dog friendly, so feel free to bring along your four-legged friends! In our experience, dogs love a day out on (and sometimes in) the river every bit as much as their owners.

Can I book a kayak or a canoe?

Our kayaks and canoes are not available along the College Backs. They'll be available to book towards Grantchester from our Boatyard punt station once COVID-19 restrictions allow us to do so.
