Day boats can be hired from this office for any period of time up to a whole day, 9.30am to 5.00pm.
They are called Heron, Grebe, Teal, Bittern and Catchalot, all apart from Heron are electric, making for quiet and easy cruising. They take a crew of between 4 and 7 people. Dogs are permitted but a large dog may count as one crew member.
Each boat is licensed so you can explore the local broads from Geldeston Lock upriver or down to Oulton Broad depending on the amount of time you have.
The cost is £20 an hour or £100 for the whole day
Fishing is permitted from boats when the engine is not running, this is to ensure the line does not get caught in the propeller.
Houseboat Accommodation at Hippersons
Houseboats are hired through Hoseasons for fun and relaxing holidays; we have five available sleeping between four and six customers.
They are called Swallows, Amazons, Coot Club, Secret Water and Lucky Venture.
Each boat has its own dingy which is licensed so customers can explore locally rowing, or the more adventurous can borrow the small sailing rig and give sailing a try. Car parking is inclusive, along with free WiFi.
Fishing is another popular activity with the houseboat customers, and there are plenty of fish to catch.
