Teddington Kayak Trip

Greater London
kayak - Up to 8 people

Description

Hop aboard our stable, traditional one-man kayaks for a fun and sociable canoe trip along the River Thames.


Suitable for all abilities, our friendly instructors will guide you through the basics before an easy-going paddle towards Eel Pie Island.




What to bring

It is a good idea to bring a re-useable bottle of drinking water to take with you.


Most people wear what they would wear for sports (shorts, running tights or leggings and a t-shirt) or what they might wear for a walk in the country (not denim). We provide a PFD (personal floatation device) for each of you. 


You must have footwear with you that you don’t mind getting wet or muddy.


If it is particularly sunny, it is recommended that you wear sun-cream and a hat. Sunglasses are also good. Be aware that can they sink quickly... so do not bring your best pair.


If there is a chance of rain, then please bring your waterproof jackets etc.


Please note that we have no toilets or changing facilities at Lock.


The nearest toilets are at The Tides End and The Anglers pubs if they are open.


Physical requirements

You are going to be paddling in beautifully touring kayaks so it is unlikely that you will end up in the water....although it can happen!


We provide PFD's (personal floatation devices) that will keep you buoyant in the water if you do end up in it. We can then help you back into your canoe.


If you are a weak or non swimmer, please do let your instructor know so that they are aware of it.


This is suitable for beginners, but a reasonable degree of fitness is required to paddle for up to an hour at a time with short breaks.
