An easy paddle on the lower Dee at Chester.  Why not hire our kayaks and explore the Lower Dee for 2 hours?


Starting from Sandy Lane, you can paddle down towards Chester City Centre, under the famous suspension bridge and as far as the Weir.

Gaze in awe at some of the magnificent properties that line the river, pop ashore for an ice-cream and see the popular Groves area from a different perspective.  You can even paddle up to the Red House riverside pub for refreshments!

This is great way to try Kayaking if you’ve never paddled before, or just fancy a play on the water.
The paddle back upstream can be strenuous – this is only recommended for people with a reasonable level of fitness.

This is a self guided trip.  You may prefer to join a guided trip or a taster session.

Whats included?

  • Safety briefing and demonstration.
  • Buoyancy Aid paddles and drybag if required.
  • Your choice of single or double kayak.
