The Cambridge Punting Company


La Mimosa Pontoon
Thompsons Lane


Tel: 07943 820437

The Cambridge Punt Company represents a co-operative of 5 City Council Licensed Punt Operators and a fleet of 13 boats. We operate from a mooring situated on the corner of Jesus Green, called the La Mimosa Pontoon. Our bookings desk is located on Quayside, a short walk along the wooden boardwalk that runs along the river from the pontoon.

Our chauffeurs will guide you easily along the river in one of our wide beam tour boats, seating up to 12 people. You will receive a well researched and thoughtfully delivered historical commentary of all of the colleges you pass, with anecdotes and tales of famous alumni thrown in too. Experience the world famous sights of King’s College Chapel, The Bridge of Sighs, and The Mathematical Bridge to name but a few.

We have a great team of experienced staff working with us and our company owners have over 15 years of experience to offer you. We know Cambridge and the River Cam inside out. Our company is an independent operator and can tailor tours to suit your needs: a romantic tour for two with Champagne and roses, a large corporate group booking with drinks - Prosecco chilled with glasses, or Hen Parties with balloons and cakes - the choice is yours. We have a flexible approach to our tours and times and can therefore adapt to your needs.

Daytime shared and private tours run seven days a week from 10am, and evenings by prior arrangement.
