Hire a boat on the Norfolk Broads with your household or support bubble

We are pleased to report that with effect from Saturday 13th June, we are now in a position to re-open our day boat hire operation. We have received guidance from our trade organisation, British Marine and the Broads Authority, which has been approved by the government.

For your safety, here are some points to bear in mind:

– Only members of the same household or support bubble can be on board

– On arrival, only one member of the party should go in to our reception office to complete the paperwork and collect buoyancy aids. Please wear a face covering.

– The boats and buoyancy aids will all be cleaned regularly but please bring your own face coverings and hand sanitizer. If you have your own buoyancy aids, please bring these too.

– It's likely that the riverside pubs and cafes will not be open for meals etc – please bring your own, if desired. Please take your waste home for safe disposal.

Our Covid-19 risk assessment is available on request.

We look forward to welcoming you. Please ring or email us to place your booking.

“We were welcomed by the guys at Phoenix Fleet boats and given clear instructions on how to safely operate. The six of us then had a fun and relaxing cruise up the Norfolk broads, even the children had a steer!”
