One of the best ways to see and experience the river! Day boats available to hire on the southern reach of the Norfolk Broads in Beccles, with day hire from 9.30am till 4.45pm, costing £100 for the day, part days are available on request.
For 2019 on Thursdays from May to August only, Hippersons are offering Twilight boat hire; running from 5.00pm till sunset (approx 8pm -8.30pm), giving you enough time to cruise to a local pub and have dinner, or bring a picnic and moor up in a secluded spot. Please note that Twilight hire is only available for advance bookings.
In a day you can cruise from the Boatyard up to Oulton Broad. Once at the broad there's a choice of pubs for lunch or cafes by a play park. After lunch, enjoy a leisurely cruise back to the yard and if you arrive with time to spare, cruise past the beautiful back gardens of Beccles and spot local wildlife!
All boats have canopies which can keep off the rain or the sun and buoyancy aids are provided for all human passengers, fuel is included in the price.
You can also stay at Hippersons Boatyard on their beautiful houseboats and luxury glamping pod right on the river! See the website for more information and watch the video by clicking on the images above to see the exciting arrival of the pod, brand new for 2019!
