Norfolk Broads boating holidays – Without a doubt, the most magical way to discover the Broads is by boat. The waterways of the Broads are safe and easy to navigate, with over 125 tranquil, lock-free miles to explore. So much of the Broads can’t be reached by road that days – and nights – afloat become a real adventure, with hidden places, perfect fishing spots and close encounters with wildlife at every turn.
The famous Broads holiday cruisers have been holiday favourites since the 1930s, and today’s boats have all the comforts of home on board, so if you prefer to visit during the quieter, cooler months, you’ll have a cosy base for your explorations. With fresh air, sparkling water and wide horizons by day, and wonderfully dark, starry nights, a boating holiday on the Broads is an unforgettable experience.
Many of our boat fleet are based on our new eco-hull, which provides maximum stability with virtually no wash to harm the river banks. Internally you will immediately appreciate the spacious and comfortable layout of these new models, conceived from the outset as a new approach to holiday boating.
Our boats will pass under most Broads bridges other than the very lowest, at suitable states of the tide. Due to the consistently high river levels, we now advise that none of our cruisers will pass under Potter Heigham bridge.
