Boat Hire

The Fish and Duck Marina is in a great location for day trips and our hire boats ‘Jubilee’ and ‘Rose’ will often be seen pottering along the river in any of the three directions from the marina. Suitable for carrying a maximum of 6 people, ‘Jubilee’ and ‘Rose’ can be hired by the day and the rate all inclusive of fuel and lifejackets is £150 (10am – 4.30pm).  A third boat has joined our fleet this year. ‘Willow’ is a day boat from the Norfolk Broads and she is suitable for parties of up to 7/8 people depending on the composition of the group, and also costs £150 per day.
All you need to bring is yourselves, appropriate clothing and a picnic if you wish, to have a thoroughly relaxing day on the river enjoying the beautiful scenery and wildlife, visiting the attractive city of Ely or stopping off at any of the popular waterside watering holes in the area.  Our day boats operate from April to October inclusive.

From 12th April – single household bookings per boat only (max. 6 people)

*** NEW SERVICE ***

To help make your day out special, we are now able to offer picnics provided by Libby Tucker at ‘Graze With Me’ to take on board the boat with you. These can be ordered at the same time as making a booking or via the following link https://grazewithme.setmore.com and will be delivered to the marina ready for collection on the day (Libby will contact you to confirm the order and take payment).
