Kayak Trips

Hop aboard one of our stable touring kayaks and paddle to an idyllic pub on the River Thames, or cast away along the coast of Cornwall. Keep your eyes peeled for wildlife from seals to seabirds, whet your appetite for adventure with a wild swim, or seek a tamer adventure with a tipple and timeout by the river.

Whether you’ve never dipped a paddle in the water before or want to hone your kayaking skills under the wing of our expert instructors, we’ve got a range of kayaking trips and courses for all abilities. Potter along the backwaters of London on an easy-going jaunt to the pub, or flex your adventure muscles on a two-day kayaking and wild camping excursion in Cornwall.

This scenic and sociable paddle is a firm favourite. Hit the River Thames and paddle around Eel Pie Island, stopping for a mid-point pint at The White Swan, a charming riverside pub in Twickenham.

Suitable for all abilities, this easy-going paddle passes through idyllic Surrey countryside, with a pit stop at a traditional 17th Century pub where the tide laps the garden tables. Bask in the sunny garden or hunker by the log fire, before drifting back downstream to your start point at River Lane.

Hop aboard our stable, traditional one-man kayaks for a fun and sociable canoe trip along the River Thames. Suitable for all abilities, our friendly instructors will guide you through the basics before an easy-going paddle to an 18th Century fishermen’s pub.

Dip into the history of the Thames as you paddle past Eel Pie and Swan Islands, before mooring up at The Anglers in Teddington – a thriving, family-friendly Fuller’s pub where you can sip real ales and tuck into a gourmet pre-ordered lunch. Hunker by the fireside or bask in the sunny garden before drifting back to Petersham, where you can take the plunge for a wild swim if you’re feeling brave.
