Cambridge Treasure Hunt Punting - Scudamore's Punting Cambridge

Cambridge Treasure Hunt

The New River Treasure Hunt Challenge is available from January 2023!!!


We heard the rumours about pirates conquering punts and looking for treasure on the River Cam. Be the first to find a treasure chest hidden between riddles and clues. 

You can join our captain's crew or try the challenge of navigating the river waters by yourself. Just be careful! The River Cam is known for its mystical creatures guarding the hidden treasures. 

Our renowned River Treasure Hunt is designed to combine elements of entertainment and sightseeing. You will see breathtaking iconic Cambridge views with some mystery and challenge - it is such a great way to make your party memorable! From a small group of people to a corporate event! Groups of up to 6 people will work together as a team to find hidden treasures. Larger groups will have the additional challenge of competing between teams.
