For over a century now it's been our pleasure to introduce successive generations of river lovers to the magic of punting - and our occasional privilege to be captured in the poems of distinguished former clientele! As the custodians of traditional punting in Cambridge we're uniquely placed today to offer visitors their first memorable experience of the River Cam. We offer hire craft on two levels of the river, with punts available for the College Backs, and canoes, kayaks and punts available for the Upper River.
