"Best hen party activity!

I would definitely recommend that everyone has a go at this. It is absolutely fantastic and great crack. We were a group of 9 women, all of which were quite nervous but as soon as you get into the kayak and paddle off the excitement takes over. Our instructors Alex and Paul were professional, understanding and absolutely hilarious which made us feel more at ease and safe. This was definitely a memorable experience that I won't be forgetting anytime soon. Grab some friends or family and try it out, I guarantee you won't be disappointed."
