We offer a full kayak hire and outfitting service including all camping and kayak equipment. You can turn up with an airport, carry on bag and we can supply everything else you need. Be sure you read this post about rental and then come back on this page for the rest of the details.
If you wish to hire a sea kayak then you need to have at least British Canoeing 4* certification (Sea Kayak Leader with the latest name change on the British Canoing scheme). If you don't hold the above certification then you should join a guided trip. If you believe your experience is at 4* level or above please send us a detailed email about your experience (about paddling in winds & waves - distances) and we can let you know afterwards if you qualify.
We do not hire out sea kayaks to complete beginners or inexperienced paddlers unless paddling with someone competent (at least 4* paddler) who is taking responsibility for their safety. You must assure us of your personal competence and inform us where you intend using the kayak.
Hirers are fully responsible for the kayak and equipment throughout the hire period and must ensure that they are personally insured for any injuries. Any loss or damage to any of our equipment must be paid for in full at the end of hire period.
