Qué harás

For many people, Ullswater, quite rightly, is considered the most beautiful of the big lakes. It features bays & beaches, islands and lots of scenery.

The ethos on the trips is always the same. Enjoy the scenery, have a chat, pass on a bit of knowledge to, and learn from, people looking for a similar venture.

The first thing we'll do is sort out what's needed for the trip and introduce the boat.

This is followed by a quick brief on what to do, then it's on to the water.

There's no set route or furthest out point. I'll always take the group and the conditions into consideration. There is beautiful scenery all along Ullswater.

Free parking at the centre.

Hi, I'm Leigh from ' Tall Bloke Adventures '.
I'm lucky enough to have had the opportunity to gain over 30 years experience of Sea Kayaking in some beautiful places around the world with some great people. Scotland, Gozo, Greece, The Maldives, New Zealand and others have been paddled and enjoyed.
I now focus on Ullswater and various parts of Italy.

Magical place for kayaking. Leigh was very reassuring given the cold waters and he had all the gear ready when we were poorly equipped.

Leigh is very attentive, experienced and a lovely person in general the whole day was amazing and time flew! Would deffo want to do this again if in the Lake District it was well enjoyed. Leigh helped with my kayaking technique and made everything comfortable , he provided us equipment to borrow and warm kit to wear, I was not bothered by the cold weather one bit thanks to this and the coolest waterproof mittens! The games we played when super fun too and a nice challenge.😊 The location that day wasn’t hard to get to via public transport either as the bus stopped almost directly opposite so we didn’t have time to get lost! ✨

This is a fantastic experience for anyone who wants to get out on the lakes! Leigh is an excellent host and took the time to make sure we were fully set-up and comfortable with the equipment we were using. This made our time on the lake completely fuss-free and allowed us to really make the most of our time. We've had some experience with kayaking, but Leighs helpful instruction increased our confidence and improved our technique. Considering the normal price of a rental kayak, the value this experience offers is great. Kayaking with Leigh is like bringing a friend you've known for ages. The challenges and games kept us on our toes and the conversation was extremely varied and interesting. I cannot recommend this enough.

Kayaking on Lake Ullswater was the highlight of my trip to the Lakes. Despite me being the only person booked that afternoon, Leigh still took me on a beautiful tour of the water. The kayaking instruction was clear and well considered, great for beginners or people feeling very rusty (as I was) and Leigh is great at instilling confidence and you feel complete trust in his expertise and the equipment. We had a great afternoon exploring, and just chatting about the Lake district (he's extremely knowledgable and very passionate about conservation in the area). Even gave me a great recommendation on where to eat for dinner that evening. This was a beautiful experience, if for nothing more, it allows you to view the scenery and lake without a mobile phone in your hand and gain a real connection to nature. Thanks very much Leigh!

Both my partner and I thoroughly enjoyed this experience. From the 'couple' games to the riddles to the surprising thoughtful and interesting conversations. Left feeling that we should have a chat at a pub! Awesome experience, I highly recommend! Thanks again Leigh!
