Meet us at our Keswick Adventures headquarters just outside Keswick. You can park up in our parking area and we'll get you kitted out for this Lake district kayak expereince with wetsuits and safety equipment.
Once the whole party is ready to go, we'll hop in the Keswick Adventures bus to drive to our starting point (please note, while Covid restrictions are in place, you may need to follow us in your own vehicle to the starting point). There, we learn the basics of kayaking before setting sail.
Floating across the water, our instructors will point out interesting sights and wildlife while guiding you across the lake or river. Once we head back to shore, we’re back in the bus and back to HQ to change out of our wet kit.
The entire Derwentwater kayaking day trip will last for approximately 3 hours, though this will differ depending on group size.
