Lake District Canoe and Kayak Instruction

Whether you are new to paddling and want to learn to canoe and kayak or have previous experience we offer canoe and kayak coaching and instruction throughout the Lake District and Cumbria.  Our friendly and professional staff will make sure you feel safe, comfortable and in control when you’re out on the water.  There are hundreds of miles of waterways in the Lake District and Cumbria just waiting to be explored and you could be cruising along anyone of them with just a few sessions of canoe or kayak instruction.  

I have been in a canoe or kayak a few times before…

Great, we love it when people have already tried kayaking or open canoeing because it means you want to come back for more. Whether you want to develop your personal skills, or are perhaps looking to get you own boat and would like to feel more confident for when you get out on your own, we can provide a variety of tuition based packages. Not all boats are the same; just like cars there are a variety of shapes and sizes that all have different purposes, advantages and disadvantages and by having a variety ourselves means you can pick and choose.

We also offer instruction for the more experienced paddler which focuses on improving existing skills.  We have experienced coaching from many different angles and we are still learning new and improved ways of moving around on the water. We can develop your skills as a paddler over a series or sessions or just fine tune something specific in a short time.

I have never been in a canoe or kayak…

Not a problem, if you would like to learn to canoe or kayak just have a look at the different types of boats we offer and see which one takes your fancy, or give us a ring and tell us what you would like to get out of your Lake District adventure.  From this we can establish which boat is best suited to what you would like and we will arrange  professional instruction in a variety of locations around the Lake District.  

Canoe and Kayak Instruction Prices

Prices for canoe and kayak instruction start at £15 per person for an hours session.  Alternatively you can have your own guide throughout on one of our canoe and kayak tours from as little as £30 per person for a half day to £50pp for a full day trip.  Contact us on 017684 86465 to discuss your Lake District kayak instruction requirements and we will design an instruction package to suit your needs.
