What to wear
We will provide you with buoyancy aids which must be worn at all times when you are out on the water. The kayaks are pretty dry on board and the only time you get wet is when you wade out to hop on the kayak, so wearing a pair of shorts or quick-drying gym trousers works well most of the time. On cooler days you have the options to use neoprene trousers and spray tops. For early and late season rentals you may wish to wear a fleece layer under your spray top for extra warmth.

You may also wish to bring: water, sun cream, neoprene beach shoes or old trainers.

Please note – We have a limited number of pedal kayaks for rental at our location so pre-booking is recommended.

Unsuitable weather
If the weather is unsuitable on your chosen day we will contact you via phone to reschedule to another date. If it is not possible to fulfil your tour due to unsuitable weather then a full refund will be issued.
