The answer to this question depends on the age and confidence of the child. We have life jackets in all sizes, and if you are used to kayaking, it is okay to paddle with a small child in your lap in a one-man kayak. It is also often possible to sit two adults and one child in a two-man kayak, with the child in the lap of the one sitting in the front. A child big enough to paddle a one-man kayak on their own can do so, accompanied by an adult.

Remember that all kayaking is at your own risk!

To paddle with us it is necessary that you are over 18 years old (or in your guardians company) and that you can swim. We have kayaks that are stable and suitable for beginners, but if you feel insecure, we recommend paddling with someone else in a two-man kayak, our most stable kayak.
