Our private kayaking experiences are crafted for families and groups seeking a personalised adventure. We tailor the session to the specific needs of your family or group, ensuring a more intimate and customised experience. Please note that we require a minimum booking of four people to facilitate a private kayaking experience.

Upon arrival and being fully equipped for kayaking, our friendly staff will present a rough itinerary for the session, offering an overview of what to expect. Before hitting the water, they will provide land-based instruction, covering the basics to instill confidence and readiness.

Throughout the session, we guide you on a journey, providing ample opportunities to practice kayak maneuvering. Towards the end, optional challenges and team games are introduced, operating on a “challenge by choice” basis to accommodate individual preferences.

To capture the moments and enhance the overall experience, our team will take photos throughout the kayaking adventure. These photos will be shared with you at the end of the session, creating lasting memories of the enjoyable kayak journey.
