Discover the Deben Kayaking Trip

A winter trip for beginners on sit-on-top and touring kayaks in good conditions, nice weather and a following tide.

£69.99 p/seat

This event is designed for beginners on sit-on-top and touring kayaks in good conditions, nice weather and a following tide. This is a social event and an opportunity for guests to get out and 'stretch their sea legs' after a long COVID lockdown. It isn't just the health benefit of this paddling event but also the mental health of a fun social gathering with other like-minded people, whilst enjoying the fresh air & exercise of the great outdoors. And we all need that!

Launching from Bawdsey Quay, we have approximately an hour of easy paddling up the Deben estuary with a following tide. This is a beautiful & quiet section of the estuary with plentiful birdlife and tranquil, scenic views. Chat along or just remain with your own thoughts as we paddle up to Ramsholt Arms where we'll land at high water on the beach. A break at the Ramsholt Arms pub for a hot drink OR bring your own flask of hot drink & a mug & of course your packed lunch.

Retail guests have the choice of kayaks to choose from although this event is designed for beginners or slightly more experienced paddlers wanting an easy day paddling. Members with their own boats are expected to use their own boats & we will provide sit-on-top kayaks to Members who do not have their own boats only.

Please ensure you complete your booking by assigning your seat to yourself - unallocated seats will not be allowed on the water. Please bring along some cash/card for lunch/drink at the Ramsholt Arms. The kayaks we provide have space for spare clothing and snacks; place items in a bag to protect from moisture.
