River Kayaking

Kayaking down the rapids

"Run the Rapids" experience

Kayaking is great fun, especially on moving water. Our sessions are centered around making sure you, the client, have the most amount of fun, whilst still learning key skills in a safe environment. We provide you with sit-on-top kayaks which make getting on and off easier, and they are also much more stable than sit-in kayaks. This is a great activity for those aged 8+ and is perfect for those wanting an adrenaline-filled activity.

All required safety equipment for your Session. Wetsuit, Buoyancy aid, Helmet, (Wetsuit, hood, gloves, socks depending upon season ).

Qualified Kayak Instructor.

We would like you to bring:

Sensible footwear which will get wet (if you are unsure please ask). We recommend old trainers, we will bring a assortment of old ones but can not guarantee they will fit.


Bather's to go under the wetsuit

Sun cream (yes, even in Wales)

Camera (optional) We can not guarantee it will stay dry or safe.

How do we get back to our car

After kayaking down through the rapids we walk back up the path to the start and run the trip a second time, time dependant of course but most of the time it is possible to get in two or more runs. Then we return to the start where we left the cars. This requires some effort to carry the boats back up the track, typically people do this in pairs to make it easier.

Questions and answers

Can we do the Activity in the rain?

Yes - Kayaking can be done in the rain.

What happens the river levels get really high?

If we have a lot of rain and the river levels increase and we feel it would make the session not very good or unsafe we will change it to White water rafting so you can still have a great time out. 

Can we change our Activities?

Yes, you would just need to let us know in advance, and the more notice you give us the more flexible we can be.

Can I wear contact lenses or glasses?

Yes: people do where contact lenses and say its ok but I don't where them so just go on others word. Glasses can be worn but its best to have a leash attached. If they fall off or get broken we can not be held responsible. If they are important to your driving think wisely before taking on session.

What group sizes can you accommodate?

Large and small groups can be accommodated please contact us for more information.

Do we need to be able to swim?

No it is unnecessary we provide you with enough floating kit that all you need to do is move your arms to move around if you fall in. 

Do you have equipment to fit all sizes?

Yes - we have a wide range of sizes in all of our equipment. Before you head out on your activities our Instructors will ensure that all equipment fits correctly and they'll make any necessary changes.

What if I have a medical condition?

Our Instructors are trained to deal with different situations, so we can easily accommodate people with diabeties, asthma, mild epilepsy, autism and more. Please contact us if you have any questions. If you require a waterproof container to bring medication please let us know in advance.
