What you'll do

We'll meet by the shore of one of the beautiful Lakes in the National Park. Coniston Water and Windermere are closest to Kendal. We'll get kitted up, cover some of the fundamental skills and have a bit of a practice on some nice sheltered water, then once you've got the hang of it we can go for a journey, explore what the Lake has to offer and stop off on a secluded island for a drink and a bite to eat before journeying back with some kayaking skills under your belt! If you fancy getting a bit wetter there are some jetties we can launch off too!

We had a great experience with Becki, learning some new skills and seeing the awesome scenery around Windermere from a unique perspective - throw in an impromptu game of kayak polo and it was a perfect outing.

It was a fantastic experience. I'd definitely recommend it regardless of whether you're a beginner, or experienced with kayaks etc. Rebecca was a lovely and entertaining host. She made sure thst everyone was having fun, and felt safe.

This was a very good experience in an amazing trip to the lake District. Rebecca was very patient as I am just a beginner at kayaking. But nevertheless, I made the most of my experience in exploring the lake.

Rebecca was a great host and made you feel very welcomed from the start to finish. She was very patient and great at instructing, making sure you felt at ease in the kayak. This mini adventure included fun games and having a hot drink on a little island. Would highly recommend booking this experience.

Well recommended! Rebecca was thoughtful and knowledgeable. She went through basics of kayaking before kayaking to a small Island where we could explore and jump off rocks. Really great fun! Definitely looking forward to joining her again on another trip!

Had a great time kayaking with Becki on Coniston water! She was initially very communicative before the experience to get all of our information for kit. As this was our first time kayaking the difficulty level was perfect, she was patient and explained the basics well. She then took us out to a small island where we had the chance to jump off rocks into the water. She clearly loves what she does and it shows in her enthusiasm. I always felt safe even though I was doing an unfamiliar activity. After going out she recommended a great hike which my partner and I did later in the day. Highly recommend the experience!
