Tuition for Norfolk Broads boat hire

No boating experience? Don’t worry. The Broads Authority has produced these simple videos. They guide you through the basics.
We also provide a handover session on arrival at the boatyard. With on the water tuition.
Plus, you’ll have a handbook. It contains helpful information on mooring up, tying knots or going under a bridge etc
Most of the northern rivers (Bure and Ant) have little tide making them very easy to navigate. The nearer you get to Gt Yarmouth the stronger the tide. Please do take advice about mooring there or crossing Braydon water.

Give our helpful office staff a ring so they can put a “hire boats for groups” package together for you
