Each night cruise lasts for 50 min-utes. The service is available from 6:30pm to 9:30pm before September and 6pm to 9pm after that.

Cruise passengers can enjoy classi-cal Chinese music, Longjing tea and some refreshment during the cruise for 90 yuan per adult and 45 yuan per child.

Boats at Hubin No. 1 Park and No. 2 Park cost 50 yuan per adult and 25 yuan per child for a round-the-lake cruise between 5pm and 9:30pm before September and between 6pm and 9pm afterwards.

Rowing boats are available near Broken Bridge.

Visitors can navigate their boats and explore a secluded lagoon in the northern part of West Lake. Tourists can also hail a boat.

All boats are equipped with a GPS system, search lights and life-saving equipment.
