Single Sit On Top Kayak Hire

  • Location Newby Bridge
  • Price from £22.00


Why not give Kayaking a go?!
Our highly versatile Sit On Top Kayaks allow you to get out and enjoy the lake regardless of experience. Perfect for families who just want to get out and explore. We have both Singles and Doubles available.
Sit On Tops are designed to be ultra stable and forgiving, easy to paddle and with a bit of a demo from our team you will be on your way in no time. There is a possibility of falling off (albeit slim) but these boats are nice and easy to get back on top of.

We do require all under 18's to be accompanied by an adult when on the water. 
Every participant should be comfortable swimming a distance of 50m.

Choose between 1 Hour, 2 Hours or 4 Hours hire.

Upon arrival at YMCA Lakeside, park up and head straight to the main reception. Here staff will direct you to our Paddlesports shop where we can get you on the water. There is some paperwork involved so please come 5-10mins early to get this out of the way and get changed for the water. 

Long John Wetsuits are optional and we will have some available to hire on the day (however sizes cannot be guaranteed). If you decide against a wetsuit, please come wearing lightweight, active wear that will dry quickly. Avoid materials such as denim and suede or anything relatively heavy.

Booking is essential in the summer so we cannot guarantee any walk in hire will be available. 

If you cannot book on your preferred day of the week, please get in touch via email at
We may be able to accommodate your hire.
