What you'll do

Our Guided Tours are a must do if you want to get out and give the sport a go, without the added pressure of perfecting your technique.
Our tour locations vary depending on weather conditions but we usually paddle on either Windermere or Coniston Water.
We will send specific details closer to the date.
We will aim to paddle on quieter parts of the lake and hopefully spot some wildlife along the way!
We start the trip with an introduction to the equipment before spending some time getting used to how it all works on the water.
Once we are all comfortable we will set off on our journey to explore the Lake District Waterways.
A typical trip would include a journey up the River Brathay (where otters have been spotted!). This is a peaceful and scenic part of the Lake where folks can tune out and relax.
We can only get so far up before we might stop for a break and meander back down.
If we have time we will venture further round the top of the Lake to explore some more.

Sessions run with a maximum of 8 per group.
All participants under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent whilst on the water.

*Long John wetsuits included

Experience Level: Novice

Duration: 2 Hours
Other things to note
I will be in a blue 'LakeSUP' sign written Toyota Land Cruiser.
I do my best to always park near the front, by the road so you can easily find me. Please call Chelsea on 07766010048 if you have any trouble.

This was the most FUN I've had in a long time! Started off getting comfortable with the action up a nice canal and back, and once warmed up, we tackled some of the waves and it was amazing! Fell into the water, but Chelsea was always nearby and had prepared me with excellent instructions in case, and I was back on the board paddling again! Lucky that I was the only one; we had a really nice chat enjoying the scenery. Chelsea was easy to locate as per description, was very warm and jovial, and gave excellent instructions and tips. Highly recommended!

Great experience, nice paddle in and around windermere with excellent support and advice for a couple of novice paddleboarders. I'd highly recommend using Chelsea for your windermere paddle boarding experience which is fun and great value.

The paddle boarding experience was awesome as it was the first time we did it. Chelsea is a great host. Her meeting directions prep details were to the point. She even accommodated a reschedule due to bad weather. The highlight of our tour was Chelsea’s dog Bowdie who came paddle boarding with us. Chelsea taught us paddle boarding very carefully and we really enjoyed it. Will definitely recommend Chelsea’s tour to my friends.

Super relaxing experience with very friendly chilled host - first time paddle-boarding and was great fun and really memorable. Very accessible and informal intro to a fun sport. A different way to see a bit of the Lakes. Would really recommend.

This was really a great day out. Quite tricky at the start and followed by a lot of fun. Chelsea is the perfect trainer. Thanks for all!

Had a lovely time today. Fell in love with the board and definitely will look into getting one myself! Chelsea was good at explaining everything and did go at everyone's pace. Would definitely recommend!
