What do I need to bring?

We have all the gear you need, we can provide Buoyancy aids, helmets and some wet weather protection gear. 


One of our coaches will get you started with the basics and get you paddling in your choice of craft (Canoe or Kayak)


Just bring something that at worst case you don't mind getting wet and a change of clothing.  

PLEASE DO NOT WEAR - cotton, denim and hoodies, as these absorb and retain water so you get cold quickly. Also bulky trainers as this will limit your kayak access, and may restrict in case of needing to exit the boat quickly


We supply all the gear you need, boats, helmets and buoyancy aids

Just bring some swimming gear, towel as you will get wet. Showers are available



Please see our venues page for location of Foulridge & the pool
