3hr kayak hire (self guided)


10am or 12.30 midday

This is our most popular hire and offers a great introduction into kayaking.

You can start your trip by paddling upstream from Sandy Lane, towards Eccleston and the Duke of Westminsters’ Estate.  You may even get as far as his Blue Bridge before turning around and heading back downstream towards Chester.  Don’t worry about paddling upstream – the flow is usually so gentle that you’ll hardly notice it.  You may also want to paddle down towards the city centre and under the famous ‘Hollyoaks’ suspension bridge.  There’s cafes and ice cream parlours to stop at, or you can even pull your kayak onto the jetty at the Red House riverside pub and restaurant, and pop ashore for refreshments.  Your journey ends back at Sandy Lane.

This is a self guided trip without an instructor.    You may prefer to join a guided trip.
