How and where can I punt?

How to punt: standing on the raised back deck, travelling in a straight line through the use of strong controlled thrusts with the pole, occasionally guiding your path through judicious use of the pole as a rudder.

How not to punt: standing at the other end of the punt - effectively in the punt as they do in “the other place” - careening from bank to bank whilst friends helpfully propel you in random directions using the emergency paddle.

Where: The Granta on the Mill Pond, Scudamores by the Mill, Trinity, Tyrrells by the bridge on Bridge Street, and the Cambridge Punting Company all rent out punts at various rates. The best plan of action is to make friends with someone in one of the riverside colleges and get them to take you out in a college punt at a much more reasonable rate.
