Waveney River Centre Day Boat Hire
Waveney River Centre is the Broads' multi-award winning Holiday Park & Marina, set in the beautiful surroundings of South Norfolk's Waveney Valley, with stunning south facing views across marshes and river. The Park is a wildlife haven, where you can spend hours watching birds, insects and other wildlife, or venture further along the river by day cruiser or canoe.
Whether you are staying on-site or visiting for the day, Waveney River Centre is an ideal departure point for a day on the tranquil waters of the southern Broads, with the pretty market town of Beccles just 1.5 hours upstream and Oulton Broad with its large children's park about 20 minutes downstream. Somerleyton with its famous stately home and maze, and the riverside village of Reedham are other popular destinations within two hours' cruise.
Our luxury, easy-to-drive, day cruisers are suitable for most weather conditions and feature a galley with hob & sink, seating area & WC. Traditional dayboats do not have galley or WC.
