Kayaking involves single cockpit kayaks, these can be a bit more unstable than the two person Canadian Canoes but are brilliant fun especially if you like getting wet (wetsuits provided)
Most canoeing or kayaking sessions involve some skills, a journey and some games this is often a half day session and can be combined with canoeing for a full water day or shared with another activity.
Why not learn to paddle on Coniston where we can explore Wildcat Island (of Swallows and Amazons fame). The sense of achievement is enormous but the reason we love kayaking is it's such a fun activity and a great way to spend a day in the Lake District.
