Although Ullswater, Windermere and Coniston Water are all great locations, we have based ourselves on Derwent Water.
Derwentwater is undoubtedly the Jewel in the crown for Stand Up Paddleboarding in the Lakes. With its proximity to Keswick and convenient parking, it is an ideal destination for your paddle board intro lesson.
Derwentwaters numerous islands, beautiful bays and sheltered river mouths provide a stunning background for your paddling experience. With part of the lake a nature reserve the wild life can be second to none, so keep a watchful eye out for Otters, Kingfishers, Ospreys and other Lake Land wildlife.
Hire a GoPro! Although we have always provided free photos of our activities as standard, we now offer the option of hiring our GoPro equipped helmet for only £15. We will then send you a DVD of the footage for you to enjoy at your leisure. Please book this extra service early, it really is a great way to remember your group and one of the Lake Districts finest ghyll scrambling activities.

The Lake District is THE home of paddle sports, and we can offer our groups half day and full day sessions, from a peaceful 1/2 day paddle around the beautiful Derwent Water to a more challenging full day river trip. Any of these options are great fun trips out for friends, families, stags, hen parties and anyone who doesn't mind running the risk of getting wet!
