Touring Kayak Safari

Southampton

Description

Join us and explore the beautiful River Hamble in touring kayaks.


This is brilliant for those who have done some kayaking before and which to explore the river more in Sea/Touring Kayaks.


Led by an experienced guide, this experience will help you progress with your Kayaking journey allowing you to venture further than you might have before.

We will start by making sure everyone is safely kitted up and ready to get on the water. Once on the water, we will teach you the skills you need for the trip.

As you venture up the river to enjoy the beautiful scenery, your guide will point out local knowledge and the array of wildlife around you.

As you will be paddling Sea/Touring Kayaks we will be able to explore the upper reaches of the River Hamble. Allowing you to take in even more beautiful scenery.

As you reach the midpoint on the trip, you will have a short break allowing you to relax on the shoreline. (weather and time permitting for break).

At the beginning of the session you will be asked to select a cold drink which you would like for the midpoint. This will be taken up the river by your guide for you to enjoy during the break.

On your return journey you will paddle back towards the centre.


Please Note this experience is in Closed Cockpit Kayaks. If you would like and introductory session beforehand please check out our introduction to touring Kayaks or why not book a private lesson?
