If you are looking for a fun family day out or something to do with your friends while in Cardiff then we have the solution for you! With our wide range of family-friendly activities, you and your group can enjoy getting on the water together and seeing all that Roath Park has to offer. For your little ones, our Kidz zone will provide them with all the fun they need while keeping them completely safe.

Our fleet of rowing boats are a fantastic way to explore the area and are of course a traditional activity that harkens right back to the area's victorian past. Whether it is rowing to the Scott Memorial Lighthouse or around the protected islands, home to a wide range of birds and wildlife there is plenty to see and do out on the water.

For those looking for something a little more serene, our Peddlerz can accommodate two up front and two passengers, allowing you to explore the lake at a more leisurely pace.

Finally for your adventurous group members we have our fantastic Water Walkerz. These huge inflatable balls accommodate up to two people at once and allow you to walk and run your way over the water. Tremendous fun all round, particuarly for those watching who soon see that it isn't quite as easy to keep your feet as you would imagine. For those who try it themselves, there will be laughter all around as you effectively experience what it is like to be a hamster in a ball.

With a wide range of group options and pricing there really is something for everyone to enjoy. Come and visit us at the boathouse or get in touch via the website and see what we can do for your group.
