At Cretelakes we offer a hassle free full inclusive package. This is done to make your holiday as stress free as possible with us taking you from the UK straight to Cretelakes.
Coach trips depart from Reylon secure car park in Dover. Meeting times are 1am Saturday Morning. This is where you will be met by one of Cretelakes Bailiffs. He will oversee that your luggage is loaded and secure ready for the trip. Our luxury coach with air conditioning, DVD player, onboard toilet and reclining seats departs as soon as the coach is loaded to board the 2.30am/3.30am. Crossing time is approximately 90 minutes.
On arrival at Calais you will then be driven to the lake which will take approximately 3 hours. We make a refreshment break during this journey. We expect to arrive at Cretelakes at approximately 8.30am local time, where your luggage will be unloaded. You will then be given one hour to have a look around the Cretelakes complex... We fully understand that parties of anglers want to fish together so at Cretelakes we have a party draw, each party is given a draw number before your departure and when your number is drawn out of the hat at the lakes you and your party members can choose where to fish, if your party is more than four anglers you will be split into separate parties of no more than four, i.e. a group of six anglers would be split into two parties of three. Once you have decided where to fish the bailiff will take your tackle to your chosen swim using our onsite land rovers and trailers this saves you having to carry all your gear to your swim.
The onsite bailiff is in charge of all the catering. If you have any special dietary requirements, then the bailiff will see that this is need is met.
We offer a full English breakfast and a cooked meal every evening. Tea and coffee is available, free of charge, during meal times.
This is served in the onsite dining area.
We also stock bottled water, milk, soft drinks, bottled lager, and confectionaries for you to purchase at any time.
There is bait available to purchase on site. The Cretelake specials are very popular.
These baits are supplied from a trusted source and are designed to maximise the chances of landing some of the Cretelake whackers.
We also stock a range of mainline and A2 baits, as well as end tackle from Korda.
A typical angler would use between 15-20 kg of boilies per week.
These baits can be pre-ordered prior to your trip.
You are welcome to bring your own bait. Please note there is a maximum of 20kg per angler due to weight restrictions on the trailer.
You need to obtain a European health insurance card. They are free and you will find details by clicking on this link. You will need this in the unlikely event you or any members of your party are taken ill. It is also advisable to get travel insurance.
