Ullswater Kayaking Tour in the Lake District

Ullswater is quite rightly considered by many to be the most beautiful of the big lakes. It features islands, beaches, and lots of scenery.

The first thing we do is sort out what’s needed for the trip. This is followed by a quick brief on what to do, then it’s onto the water. There’s no set route, that will depend on conditions and group ability. At the moment (2020) we take a maximum of 4 people on a trip.

All under 18’s must be accompanied on the tours by at least one responsible adult.

Sea Kayaks are used for maximum comfort and stability. We use double ( tandem ) boats unless there is an odd number of guests on the trip. While a capsize is very unlikely, it is always possible, so please bring spare clothes just in case you do go in.

With that in mind, for each person we have a maximum BMI limit of 28, a maximum weight limit of 108 Kg ( 17 Stones ) and a maximum shoe size limit of 47 ( UK 13 ). If any of these apply to you please don’t think ‘ Oh, it’ll be ok ‘. It’s not. You will be uncomfortable, you’re more likely to capsize yourself and your partner, and you’re more likely to struggle when getting back in the boat. See the FAQ page for more details.

Please respect these limits. It is in your, and your partners, interest to do so.

Free parking is at the meeting / starting / finishing point.

The beach we launch from is at Glenridding Sailing Centre,  a very friendly, accommodating place.
