The Kayaks can be Hired for use on the Sea, the Lake, for use in Team-Building, or to do an Event like the Southern Traverse.

3 Hours
9am & 12pm

Multisport Kayaks are usually only Hired for Non-Graded River, or Sea Paddling.
Carbon wing paddles are an optional extra – conventional paddles are included in the Hire.
Season Pass – If you don’t own your own Kayak and want to paddle regularly, this is the way to go. Compared to gym membership it’s great value. Paddle as much as you want mid week, use boatshed facilities, no hassle transporting a Kayak. It only takes 10 visits to pay your Membership, and then you paddle for free for the rest of the season.

GROUP DISCOUNTS – Discount’s available for groups of 10 or more please contact us to discuss.
