Typical itineraries lasting 3 to 4 hours are:

For added adventure you can also extend your day and visit Trout Tarn (Beacon Tarn) and Octopus Lagoon (Allan Tarn).  Talk to us for a customised Swallows and Amazons Day.

You will probably land at "The Secret Harbour" and disembark to explore the island and see where John, Susan, Titty and The Boy Roger set up their tents and played pirates.

If the weather is clear you will enjoy beautiful views towards the north end of the lake. You can take your boat around the island, or if you are feeling brave, do the rock jump into the lake. There's even buried treasure to be found in the  shape of a Geo Cache. Find the Cache and leave a message for others who follow.

Having explored the island, jumped from the jump, and left no stone unturned looking for treasure, you will make the return trip to the shore. With photos to remind you this is a trip you will remember.

Swallows and Amazons Adventure
