Water Sports Hire


Kayak Hire

kayak hireYou can hire a kayak from our base in Bideford, on the banks of the River Torridge.

Take a kayak for a leisurely paddle up the Torridge estuary towards the iron bridge at Landcross. Enjoy the peace and beauty of Devon’s countryside from a different perspective.

For the adrenaline seekers why not take a kayak to one of our local beaches for endless fun in the surf or maybe an adventurous fishing trip (we’ll lend you an inflatable roof rack too).

The sit-on kayaks are very stable and buoyant, ideal for the beginner to experience the fun of paddling on open water.
