Sit-on-Top Kayaking 


Sit-on-Top Kayaking has revolutionised novices getting on the water quickly, easily, comfortably and being confident with the craft in minutes.

This is by far the easiest of the watersports in terms of comfort, fear factor and ease of use. The instructor will have you moving around like a pro in a very short time. A great way to explore the water with no steep learning curve.

Sit-on-Top's float either way up and the user cannot get stuck inside the boat. They represent an approachable and friendly sport for all ages and abilities.

Your bum will get wet,  we offer wetsuits but mostly you won't need them.

Great fun! 

Easy access to the water with minimal learning curve or effort. Your instructor will soon have you moving confidentaly before taking you off to explore the area more...

For a day messing about on the water getting wet in a variety of ways, add Raft-Building for the other half of the day. Full days are always better value than half days more...

Try two classic paddlesports in a single day. Canoeing has a very different feel - you sit higher and things wobble a bit more. However, with a few people in your boat, you can move quickly about on the water more...

Tandem open canoes are a great way to get out and about on the water. For longer trips, greater stability and speed we can catamaran the boats, and even add a sail. We use mainly Windermere and Coniston lakes, but also have a mobile fleet that can go anywhere.

Canoeing is an excellent vehicle for travelling with all the toys needed to make shelters and cook delicious meals over an open fire.

Canoe Bushcraft involves travelling by catermeran canoes to a remote location before setting up camp and learning to light fires, bake breads, make pizzas, crumbles and hot drinks.
