Kayaking in Somerset
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.
Our Kayak locations in Somerset
We offer kayaking in Somerset with hire on the sea at our Minehead centre and on the river from our Taunton centre so there’s no excuse to not give it a go! From Taunton you can choose from our single or double kayaks. You can 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. From Minehead you can hire one of our double kayaks and play in the Bay or if feeling a bit more adventurous paddle over to the harbour. We also offer 1-1 lesson, please contact us directly for this.
If you are a group of 8 people or more kayaking is also available as a bespoke private booking in Taunton. It’s also available as part of our Stag and Hen packages as well as birthday parties etc.
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.
