Come and Kayak in Somerset! Kayaking is great fun for everyone and even if you’ve never done it before you can get out and enjoy being on the water. All the kayaks we use are sit on top kayaks. These have an open deck where the paddler sits. There is no closed cockpit, and the legs of the paddler are always exposed. These are not only more comfortable, they are perfect for new paddlers and super safe. Our kayaks suit a range of sizes as they have built in foot braces for different leg lengths.
Kayak in Taunton
We offer kayaking from our riverside centre in Taunton where you can hire or join one of our instructed sessions or lessons where they’ll teach you the fundamentals all while having fun. We have both single and double kayaks available. Fancy exploring? Hire a kayak and head up the river and search for wildlife or head down the river towards the town centre and even jump across onto the Bridgwater and Taunton Canal. We also offer 1-1 lessons, please contact us directly for this.
What to bring
With kayak hire buoyancy aids and all safety equipment is provided meaning you only need to bring a towel, something to wear in the water and some shoes that can get wet. We do have wetsuits available to hire at both centres.
All equipment is cleaned between uses.
