Book your cruise on Steam Yacht Gondola

Gondola is now off the water for the winter until 30 March but you can still book ahead for 2019.

You can book your cruise online up to 24 hours in advance of your cruise. If you're planning to sail on the day, you can just turn up at the jetty and pay on board - it is rare that Gondola is fully booked. We recommend that you arrive 15 minutes prior to departure times to allow ample time for all passengers to board.

Gift vouchers for Christmas, Mother's day, birthdays and special occasions

You can buy vouchers for Full Lake cruises online - this is an open-ended ticket which the recipient of the gift can book at their leisure. Just select the voucher option on the drop down menu. Alternatively, you can really push the boat out by getting an 'Engineer for the Day' experience voucher - this is a full day experience for one person who would be part of the crew on all cruises for the recipient's chosen date.
