Kayaking is one of our most funniest and exciting activities, and with Mountain Monkeys you can guarantee your kayaking will be 'splash-tastic'!
We have a fleet of sit on top kayaks which are suitable for ages across the board as well as more traditional kayaks with enclosed cockpit areas. both adventurour and fun! For beginners our centre and local canals of the Northwest or flat lakes provide the perfect introduction.
By the end of the session we aim to provide you with the skills necessary to control your kayak. After a short warm up and some coaching in basic strokes a we take people on journey across a lake or down the canal in order to building on people experiences. Paddling skills will be coached in a fun environment, involving games as well as personal coaching.
