Sea kayaking is unique, adventurous and environmentally interactive as you get to see dolphins, seals and eagles at close quarters in a tranquil setting. It is a great way to see the countryside and experience something new.

A kayak trolley is provided to transport your kayak down to the river. You can paddle into the city from the hire location or take a leisurely paddle for a few hours.
