Distanced Shared Tour

Our shared punting tours have been re-designed to be Covid secure. Book a row of seats for 2 or 3 people or a section for up to 6.

COVID-19 Safety: Perspex screens screens in place where different households are sitting back to back. In the case where rows are opposite each other the minimum head-to-head distance is 1.5 metres.

Shared Punting Tours

Our ‘distanced shared’ tours are the most cost effective option for chauffeured punting in Cambridge. To ensure that our punting tours are COVID secure we have installed perspex screens on all of the boats. Depending on your group size select a ticket for up to 2, 3 or 6 people.

Our shared punting tours of Cambridge last for approximately 50 minutes and depart regularly throughout the day.

Pricing

We use dynamic pricing meaning prices vary through the day, week and season. We are able to offer our best rates when the river is at its quietest – before 12pm and some evenings.

When booking once you have selected your date the prices for all departures times will be on the screen. See pricing tables below for more information.

Cambridge Punting – COVID-19

Due to COVID-19, we have had to make changes to how we operate our Cambridge Punting tours. More information about our Covid-19 safety measures can be found here. Our distanced shared punting tours remain the best value for small groups looking to enjoy the majesty of the River Cam. By adding perspex screens and ensuring each row of seats is only one household/bubble we can still offer great value punting whilst complying with the social distancing guidelines which currently state households (or support bubble) should be 1 metre from other households when outside.

Please note when purchasing a shared tour ticket there will be other groups on the boat. You will be separated from them by a minimum head to head distance of more than 1 metre or a perspex screen.

If the screens or masks on the boat impede you hearing the chauffeur in any way we also have a Free Audio Tour which can be downloaded and used during your tour. You are still welcome to bring food and drinks onboard but we ask you to please take any rubbish with you and dispose of it safely.

A Few Changes

Due to social distancing guideline and minimising cross contamination we have made the following changes:

  • Life Jackets and Umbrellas are temporarily unavailable. You are very welcome to bring your own.
  • We are unable to allow any customers the opportunity to have a go at punting.
  • Our rugs covering the cushions have been replaced with a wipe clean material.

COVID-19 Safety Measures

  • Perspex screens on each boat separating different groups of customers and the chauffeur from the customers where the minimum 1m distance is not possible.
  • All staff to wear clear plastic visors whilst within 1m of customers where screens are not in place.
  • Boat sides and cushions cleaned between each tour.
  • Specific departure times booked in advance to assist social distancing meaning no queuing.
  • Tour available on an app with free download code (in the case that screens and masks make it difficult to hear the chauffeur).
