Hire a two-person sit-on-top kayak to tour the stunning scenery of Lake Windermere from the water.
We are based right next the YHA Ambleside at Waterhead in an idyllic little cabin on the lake shore. There is a cafe at the YHA ready to provide you with cake and tea after a journey on the water.
Modern design technology makes sit-on-top kayaks the safest and easiest craft to use. Great for complete novices and perfect for families alike 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.
Recommendations of What to Bring:
We require everybody to be wearing a T-shirt under their Buoyancy Aid. Please bring along any clothing and footwear you do not mind getting wet. We do not allow any denim or suede to be worn out on the water. It is recommended you bring a full change of clothing (just in case you got for a dip!) If the weather is looking cooler extra fleeces and waterproofs are advisable, bring suncream, hat and a bottle of water (no single plastics please!) if the weather is looking warm.
Available between 9:45am - 4:30pm
