Broads Tours provide river trips and day boat hire on the Norfolk Broads, National Park.

River trips

Choose a Broads Tours river trip, sit back, relax and do it in style with an entertaining live commentary.  Your skipper will tell you all you need to know about the area’s history, the wildlife and more, he will even throw in the odd funny tale.  Light refreshments and licensed bar available.

We run a daily timetable of River Trips from 1st April – 31st October. During July and August we host Evening Music Cruises.  Choose from a lively Boogie on the Broads every Wednesday evening, or how about a Jazz Cruise on Thursday evenings with either the  Norfolk Dixieland Jazz Band or the SiMBiOSiS Jazz band.

Winter is not forgotten at Broads Tours either, during December we run our ever popular Santa Cruises.

Manual wheelchair users are welcome on all of our trips.  Advance booking is recommended to avoid disappointment.
Generous group discounts are available or groups of 15 or more people.  Booking is essential for groups.

Self-drive dayboats

For the independent explorer we operate a fleet of day boats and day cruisers. Our standard day boats are available by the hour up to a full day. Our day cruisers are available for a full day’s hire only. For the larger party we have our eco-friendly electric propelled day launches that can accommodate up to 11 people. For both the day cruiser and and the large electric booking required to avoid disappointment.


We run a full calendar of events throughout the year, please see our website or the events section for more information.

Whichever way you choose to experience the Broads we know that you will have a truly memorable day that you will want to repeat again and again!

    Broads Outdoors Festival Boat Trip at Broads Tours

    As part of the Broads Annual Outdoors Festival you can take a cruise from Broads Tours in Wroxham to Hoveton Great Broad Nature Trail.  Your journey will take you across Wroxham Broad and around Salhouse Broad.  Your skipper will give an entertaining live commentary; he will explain the origins of the Broads and point out the abundance of wildlife and other points of interest along the way.
    He will then moor the Belle of the Broads up at the Nature Trail moorings where you will be met by the Natural England Warden who will take you for a guided tour around the 1km boardwalk.  The walk will take you through a real Broadland wilderness surrounded by wonderful sights and sounds.  Listen to the noisy colony of nesting common terns as you look across Hoveton Great Broad, watch dragonflies gliding and if you are really lucky you may just spot an otter or a swallowtail butterfly!  You will then re-board the boat for the return journey to Wroxham.

    Please be aware that dogs are not permitted on the Nature Trail and that the boardwalk is not suitable for wheelchair users.  Apologies for any inconvenience that this may cause.
