Pleasure-boating on Lake Balaton

One must live what no photograph can adequately depict!

Our pleasure-boating ships depart from almost all of our ports, and following an unmatchable boating experience, they return to their original starting point.

We await our dear passengers for an hour-long trip from spring to late autumn. On the evening's trip we spice up the experience by sailing romantically into the sunset with champagne and soft drinks departing.

During the pleasure-boat trip, our passengers can simultaneously marvel at the beauty of Lake Balaton and of the shoreline sights, as well.

Upon request, apart from the regularly advertised pleasure-boat trips, we can provide the same service of pleasure-boating to groups, as well!

Pleasure-boating possibilities:

  • 1 hour-long pleasure-boating:  During the pleasant one-hour-long trip, one can marvel at the eye-catching beautiful world of Lake Balaton and of the shoreline sights, as well.
  • 1 hour-long pleasure-boating into the sunset:  During the early hours of the evening, while sailing on the lake, one can marvel at the sight of the wondrous sunset.  As part of the romantic hour-long boat trip, we charmingly provide our passengers with champagne and soft drinks.
  • Romantic Badacsony trip: Take a trip with us on a pleasant summer evening from Keszthely to Badacsony on the deck of the 125-year-old nostalgic ship, the Helka! After the one and a half-hour boat trip, a one hour long free programme is available in Badacsony to the passengers prior to the return trip to Keszthely.


Use of the “Boating possibilities” search function

At the top of the page, or rather, with the help of the “Boating possibilities” search window to be found on the homepage, you can search all of our pleasure-boats. Select the pleasure-boats icon, indicate the port from which you wish to depart or choose it from the provided map.  Naturally, the “search window” uses the current day as default; however, you may alter that as you wish. The “result” page of the “search” window will also provide you with all other boating services, which you can utilize from your point of departure.


Presentation of ships and settlements

As a novelty of this year, we have placed information posters on our ships. By scanning the QR code with a mobile phone, passengers can listen to the history of the ships and interesting facts about them, either on the way or later. In addition, we also prepared information about the settlements at Lake Balaton and their sights. The audio materials are also available on the BAHART website under the "Presentation of ships and settlements" page.
