Leave the kids at camp and try open top kayaking at the scenic Tittesworth Reservoir for over 16s only. If you’ve ever fancied trying paddling, sit-on-top Kayaks are an ideal place to start – you can jump in and start right away without worrying about rolling over! (You will probably still get wet though. If a Kayaker doesn’t get wet, have they really kayaked at all…). No experience needed – complete beginners welcome!
What to Expect:
A minibus will provide you with a return journey to Tittesworth Water where you will collect your kayak and hit the water.
A qualified instructor will teach you:
- How to paddle forwards and backwards
- How to turn and steer
- How to stop
Plus there’ll be plenty of time for splashing about in the picturesque Tittesworth reservoir too.
What to Bring:
- Swimwear or clothing you don’t mind getting wet
- Shoes to wear in the water
- A towel
- A dry change of clothes
Wetsuits, helmets, buoyancy aids and kayaks are provided.
