Mambo- Beginners Single Sit on Top Kayak Hire. Wk7


Product Description

Have a play on the lake in one of our kayaks..

All hire sessions are for two hours.  Each boat takes 1 adult or child (most children can manage from around 8 years)

Buoyancy aids are provided for adults and older children.  Lifejackets are provided for babies and smaller children.

Due to the coronavirus outbreak we are offering hire by appointment only, in addition to booking you boat/s you also need to book a briefing slot and changing:-

No Changing needed

Private outdoor tent changing

Private indoor changing with shower.

To allow social distancing to take place, it is essential that you arrive at the booked time so that our staff can fit you for buoyancy aids and give you your briefing.  

If you are late arriving, we will do our very best to fit you in as soon as possible but there is likely to be a delay. Due to later bookings and the time needed to clean boats and kit after each session it is unlikely we will be able to extend your session. 

If we scramble a rescue boat due to you being late returning, this will impact other hirees and a proportional charge may be levied.

You must agree to our hire rules to go on the lake in one of our boats.
