BSO Introduction to Sit On Top Kayaking


Try open top kayaking at the scenic Tittesworth Reservoir. If you’ve ever fancied trying paddling, sit-on-top Kayaks are an ideal place to start – you can jump in and start right away without worrying about rolling over! (You will probably still get wet though. If a Kayaker doesn’t get wet, have they really kayaked at all…). No experience needed – complete beginners welcome!
