Our friendly and professional staff will make sure you feel safe, comfortable and in control when you’re out on the water.

I have been in a canoe or kayak a few times before…
Great, we love people who have already tried kayaking or open canoeing because it means you are coming back for more. We just want to make sure that when you get a canoe or kayak from us that you will be safe and confident while out on your adventure, because 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. An hour or 2 with one of our instructors will clarify the information required for you to happily paddle off independently, plus you will be left feeling more confident and in control of your craft.
We also offer instruction for the more experienced paddler which focus 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. When you have finished your instruction session you are then free to paddle off and explore your chosen location from the seat of your kayak or canoe, just let us know what you plan to do and we might be able to give you some great local knowledge that will make it even better.
