Paddling on Derwent Water in a Canadian Canoe is the perfect activity for young families. The Canoe is a very stable vessel and will rarely capsize on flat water but, for young children, we can raft the boats together which means they cannot capsize at all  and play lots of fun games while on the water. Paddling out into deep water is a great way for children to gain water confidence and they can learn some basic paddle strokes whilst on the move! Depending on your preferences, we can stay close to shore, journey out to visit one of the islands, or explore the surrounding bays. We usually stop somewhere for a hot drink, so adults can relax and take in the views while the children run around and explore this beautiful outdoor environment. This activity is available to book as a morning, afternoon or full day activity.


 *Please note that under 18s must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
