About Windermere Canoe Kayak

Sit On Top Kayaks / Canadian Canoe Hire

Explore Windermere from our Boathouse located on the shore – you will have direct access to the lake. A short paddle will take you across to the most sheltered areas – ideal for exploring islands and taking in the wildlife. Our sit-on-top kayaks are very stable and easy to paddle so suitable for everyone. We also have open canoes and closed cock-pit kayaks for those with a little more experience. Guided Tours are also available on specific dates.
