What if I’ve never kayaked before?
The kayaks you will be using are very stable and suit all levels of paddlers, even if you have never paddled before. Our experienced staff will take you through the basic skills so you have the knowledge and adequate paddling capability to enjoy being out on the water.
I’ve never paddleboarded before – will you teach me on the day?
We will give you a paddle briefing before launching you safely out onto the water on the day. While the conditions and equipment mean that we are ideally suited for first time paddlers the briefing is not a detailed instruction of how to paddleboard. If you would like to learn the sport please consider booking one…
Will I get wet?
Yes, it is likely that you will get a little wet from paddle splashes when kayaking or paddleboarding. Water will also enter the kayak (as they are sit on top kayaks) so the seat will be wet.
What should I wear?
We suggest people wear clothes that you don’t mind getting damp or that you would normally work-out in. Running shoes and socks are not recommended as they tend to get soggy. Paddle shoes, sandals or even just bare feet are fine.
What kind of kayak will I be paddling?
All our kayaks are recreational, easy to use kayaks. We have sit-on top single and double kayaks to choose from.
Do I need to book?
We would recommend booking your choice of equipment in advance so that we are able to guarantee that we have it available for you at your chosen time. You are able to hire on the day but please be advised that there may be a wait for equipment at busier times.
Can we stay out for longer if we change our minds?
Can we get 2 adults and 3 children in the boat? We are only small so could we squeeze 5 in….?
Where can I go?
You are able to go anywhere within the boundaries of the “Hire Vessel Boundary”and the “Ferry Path” for safety reasons. You will be given a copy of a map before you head out onto the water and a member of staff will go through this with you on the day.
