Join us kayaking in and around one of the most beautiful harbours in the world.
2021. No trips running. 2022. Vedremo.
Ullswater is quite rightly considered by many to be the most beautiful of the big lakes. It features islands, bays & beaches, and lots of scenery.
The ethos on the trips is always the same. Enjoy the scenery, have a chat, pass on a bit of knowledge to, and learn from, people looking for a similar experience. There’s no set route, that will depend on conditions and group ability.
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 maximum limits of a BMI of 26, maximum weight of 102 Kg ( 16 Stone ).See the FAQ page for more details.
Free parking is usually offered at the centre. The exceptions to this are the 1.30 pm trips on weekends in June, July & August and Bank Holiday weekends. In these cases, as the centre is not large, please park in the village instead and walk down the little lane. Allow extra time on busy days.
The beach we launch from is at Glenridding Sailing Centre, a very friendly, accommodating place.
