Kayak Safari

Southampton
kayak - Up to 8 people

Description

Join us on a instructor led trip up the River Hamble.

We will start by making sure everyone is safely kitted up and ready to get on the water. As you get on we will teach you the skills you need for the trip. Your instructor will guide you up the beautiful River Hamble stopping to point out the array of wildlife we can find on the river. On our Safaris we will try to have a small break at the Horse & Jockey pub (you may wish to bring some money for this). During the trip we will play a few games and take part in some challenges. Our Sit on top kayaks are extremely stable allowing anyone to give this a go, no experience necessary. So what are you waiting for? join us on the beautiful river Hamble and after only a short paddle you are immersed into the stunning natural surroundings.


Each Safari includes a safety briefing, paddle and buoyancy aid.

Itinerary

Please arrive 20 minutes before the safari start time as this will allow you to, sign in and get changed before your instructor meets.


You will receive a brief overview of the equipment and technique on land outside The Paddle Centre before collecting your equipment and walking it down to the waters edge.


Your instructor will then help everyone get on the water. Once everyone is on they will go through some coaching to help you control your craft. After this you will start to head up the river. Passing the marinas on the way you'll quickly find yourselves immersed in nature.

Paddling on the beautiful Hamble River you'll be able to see ancient woodlands and a array of wildlife.

As your time starts to come to an end we will paddle back towards The Paddle Centre so we can return our equipment and sign back in. After all this why not treat yourself to a slice of cake, a coffee or even an ice cream.
