Rowing Boats

Rowboat Rental

Rowboats in Cambridge

As Kenneth Grahame, the Wind in the Willows author, wrote: 

“There's nothing – absolutely nothing – half so much worth doing as messing about in boats.”

Rowing was a traditional activity on the Cam and pre-dates punting as a pleasure boating experience.

Despite offering this service for 111 years we're sad to announce that the rowboat popularity has declined. As of August 2014 Scudamore's have ceased to offer rowing boat rentals.
