2hr kayak hire


10am, 12.30am and 3pm

Why not hire our kayaks and explore the Lower Dee for 2 hours?  It’s a great way to try Kayaking if you’ve never paddled before.

Starting from Sandy Lane, you can paddle down towards Chester City Centre, under the famous suspension bridge and as far as the Weir. This section of river has the most spectacular properties you’ll see on the Dee. You can also use the time whilst you paddle past the Groves to pop ashore for an ice-cream!

Paddle upstream and you’ll get into the quieter waters that flank The Meadows and farmland.  If it’s wildlife you want to see then this is the way to go.  This winter alone we’ve seen Kingfishers, Herons, Cormorants and Mandarin ducks, besides all the usual river wildlife.

Whats included?

  • Safety briefing and demonstration
  • Your choice of boat and paddle
  • Buoyancy Aid
  • Start and End point: Sandy Lane riverside car park CH3 5UL

This is a self-guided trip without an instructor.  Alternatively you may prefer to join a guided trip or a taster session.

**Minimum of 2 Kayaks must be hired for this activity**
