Michael is lucky as Magdalen have their own punts so every so often he'll take to the water, always in a group where no-one knows the first thing about controlling the boat!! How people don't drown is the question I always ask. Students are notorious for drinking and punting!!
Punts are available to the public for hire.tt's a pretty expensive business so make the most of the hire. Prices start from 9 an hour with huge deposits payable.

Address: The Cherwell and Isis rivers
Directions: The punts we noticed were moored by Magdalen Bridge on High Street. A punt station at Cherwell Boathouse on Bardwell Road is another option.
