Lakes kayak hire and instruction

Welcome to Lakes kayak hire, owned and operated through AdventureVertical. Our aim is to provide a quality kayak hire combined with professional instruction to supplement our Lakes based activities.

While you may wish to hire kayaks for yourselves with out instruction, we believe that combining hire with instruction, increases safety for yourselves, but also enables you to access local knowledge for those secluded lunch stops. Instruction is low key and unobtrusive and should help make your session all the more memorable.

By utilising single person Islay sit on top kayaks from Venture Kayaks and Tarpons 130T Tandems from Wilderness Systems, we can offer family friendly sessions for up to 5 persons, enabling parents to paddle with a young child in the same kayak as themselves.

At the moment we’re at an exciting time as once the current lockdown is relaxed we’re looking forward to collecting our new fleet of boats and a fresh array of clothing and equipment to fit a wider range of sizes. We’ve been waiting 6 months for these so we’re really excited.

Previous experience: None, but its advisable to be happy floating in the water, just incase.
