COVID-19 Procedure Alterations...

In light of the risks associated with the spread of COVID-19, we've implemented a number of control measures outlined in the risk assessment for this activity.

Specific Notes:

  • As usual, a safety boat will be on standby, however, to enable social distancing, the boat will now only intervene in an emergency situation. It cannot assist kayak/SUP rental customers for their convenience.
  • It is recommended that participants ensure a sufficient level of fitness to re-enter/board the kayak/SUP without staff assistance.
  • Cancellation and refunds is permitted if the customer is not happy they can satisfy this. This should not be confused with a withdrawal of assistance in an emergency, additional measure will be in place should this need arise.
