‘SUP’ the River – the next step

Once you have mastered the basics of paddle boarding, why not try out a slow-moving tidal river. The Western Lakes provides the perfect location for the next step in paddle boarding, it is surprisingly close to a wonderful coastline and we have two fantastic accessible rivers which flow into the Estuary in the scenic village of Ravenglass, which as well as the English Lake District, Ravenglass in it's own right boasts the UNESCO World Heritage status, due to its History as an important naval base for the Romans in the 2nd century.

The Journey will depend on the tidal times as the water in the estuary disappears during low tide, but if you time it right you can take a relaxing journey from Ravenglass on the incoming tide and then once the tide turns, return to the village and enjoy a cake or cream tea in one of its pubs or cafes.

Minimum Age: 14
Duration: Approx. 6 Hours
