We offer a choice of canoes. We have both single and double kayaks, which are propelled using double ended paddles. Double Kayaks are also available with additional child seats, so you can paddle out as a family.
These kayaks have large cockpits for your comfort. Also if you happen to turn a kayak over you will easily slip into the water supported by your buoyancy aid.
