Types of Kayaks and Canoes For Hire

Here at Windermere Canoe and Kayak we have boats to suit all ages and abilities, so no matter your level of experience you can get out on the water and have a great time!


Sit on Top Kayaks

Modern design technology makes this the safest and easiest craft to use. Great for complete novices and perfect for families who just want to get out on the water and have some fun!  

No experience required!

Sit-on-tops are hard to capsize, easy to paddle in a straight line and practically unsinkable. All safety equipment is supplied along with a safety briefing and technique workshop.

Boats available:

Single person and Tandem Sit on Tops – With scope for a third person (a very small child) on some of our larger tandem sit-on-tops. 

 




Canoes

The classic and most versatile mode of transport as used by Geronimo and his Native American buddies. Some experience required: BCU Star 2 star preferred. However if you have lots of quality experience and no awards, a chat to one of our friendly staff will soon see you out on the water!  

Or: Lessons available for any ability level.

Boats available: Two person canoes.



Kayaks (closed cockpits)

Originally developed by the ‘Eskimo’ Inuit people – just as much fun in warmer climates. The kayak now has many different reincarnations all available to hire.
