St Ives Electric Riverboat
Fancy taking in the riverside but not looking for a long walk, you’re in luck. Take a boat trip for an hour and see the wildlife on the riverside come to life. If you are keen you can drive the boat yourself, but if that’s not your thing then worries, you can hire a chauffeured boat.
