Kayaks are great fun and with our ‘sit on top’ kayaks everybody can enjoy being out on the water.  It’s a rare opportunity to get out on the Beaulieu River unguided and you’ll be free to explore and splash about on the river’s calm waters.

Kayaking is a fantastic way to spend some time on the water; however, at some times of year it’s nice to add a special twist.  From seasonal events like our Ladies Only Kayaking and Evening Paddles, to the group favourites like our Paddle to the Pub.  Take a look at what’s coming up and book, or let us know if you’re a group wanting a bespoke activity.
