Kayak Trips

Winter is a beautiful time to be on the water, with crisp blue sky days and the summer crowds gone, the river is peaceful and quiet. We run a stripped down schedule though the winter months, but as always, can create bespoke group trips to suit you.

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.
