Alton Water, Tattingstone, Suffolk
Two hours of family fun with your own sit-on-top kayak, paddle and buoyancy aid under the watchful eye of our Guide who is bank-based. Perfect for families who want to get their kids out enjoying the outdoors and doing some exercise too.
Each guest will be provided a sit-on-top kayak, paddle and buoyancy aid. You'll have two hours of free paddle time (or longer if we're not busy) to do your own thing. This is a great event for families of all ages and abilities but remember that all children must be accompanied by their legal guardian at all times as this event is unguided.
The event is held on inland non-tidal fresh water and there are good facilities on site including pay and display parking, toilets and showers and a cafe offering hot food and drinks. One of our shore-based staff will be on-site to keep an eye on you and there is RIB safety boat cover on the water provided by the watersports centre. Two hours on the water - unguided, unaccompanied.
Prices are per person but a Family Ticket is available for £84.99 for up to four (4) guests of any age. Please see under 'Adventures'.
Weather Remit: A wind of a maximum of 15 knots steady blow and this includes wind gusts. The trip will be rescheduled if the wind exceeds this limit and there is further discretion on the part of the Lead Guide with all-night events. Rain, snow and other conditions don’t generally affect our ability on the water. Exceptions are sometimes made and this is at the discretion of your Lead Guide and/or the Operations Director. Your Lead Guide will make a decision based on the wind speed (including wind gusts) in combination with tide strength and direction, time of day or night and size of the group alongside other factors that may influence the safety and comfort of the entire group. NSK wants to get your event completed as soon as possible; please trust the judgement of your coach/Guide.
