Au programme

Please wear something comfy for kayaking that you don't mind getting splashed. You also need to wear suitable footwear (old trainers or securely fitting sandals). NO SWIMWEAR, FLIP-FLOPS or CROCS!

When you arrive at The Pirate Castle, you'll meet your instructor guide and be given a buoyancy aid to put on. We'll then give a short safety talk and show you the basics on how to use your paddle and control your kayak.

You'll get into your boat (we'll help if you're wobbly!) and once everyone in the group's on the water we'll practise some basic paddle strokes before heading off on a gentle tour that weaves along the prettiest stretch of the Regent's Canal towards London Zoo, then back to Camden's famous lock and The Pirate Castle.

This experience is 1.5 hours long (including kitting up/briefings). All tours depart from/return to The Pirate Castle. The pace and distance travelled will vary for each tour, depending upon ability levels - absolute beginners and more experienced paddlers welcome! Our kayaks are suitable for weights up to 110Kg. Canoes available for paddlers up to 300Kg.

Kayaking is a watersport, so we'll go ahead even if it's raining. We only cancel tours in the event of thunder and lightning due to potential risks, in which case we'll discuss available options.

Due to our Covid-19 security protocols our changing room and shower facilities are unavailable.

The Pirate Castle is an amazing boating charity in Camden Town. After joining as a volunteer 14 years ago, I trained to become a qualified canal boat skipper and kayak coach to help run our canal-based projects in my spare time. I'm now part of the staff team and live locally on a canal boat!

Join one of our kayak tours for a leisurely adventure along the picturesque Regent's Canal and discover a different side of London. Your fully qualified, experienced and friendly instructor will share local insights and keep you safe, while you can feel good knowing that 100% of ticket sales helps fund our projects for local people.

À propos de l'association : The Pirate Castle



The Pirate Castle promotes life chances, learning and healthy living through a raft of specialist canal and land-based projects. We've been flying the flag for opportunity and adventure on Camden's canals since 1966, providing free and affordable activities so that local children, disability groups and vulnerable members of our community can experience the benefits of being on the waterway.

Le montant perçu pour cette expérience solidaire est intégralement reversé à The Pirate Castle.

Le lieu

The Pirate Castle is a distinctive gateway to the waterway that opens up a different side of Camden Town. Away from the bustling streets and markets, you might be lucky enough to see African Hunting Dogs or warthogs as we paddle past London Zoo.

Great experience, our guide was lovely and the experience was unique. Although, being novice kayakers on a busy canal, it was a bit more difficult than I had imagined in terms of the actual sport aspect itself.

The experience is great fun and accessible for all levels. Having never kayaked before we were brought up to speed and had lots of fun on the canals. Would recommend.

It was wonderful! My partner and I had a really good time, we had a bit of story telling, we saw some natural wild life and the weather was perfect. Would definitely do it again!

Amazing experience! Karl was a fantastic patient guide and both myself (novice) and my husband (not a novice) were looked after really well. Wonderful to support a fantastic local charity and extra special thanks for arranging the sunny weather!

It was brilliant! The host told us a little history but not enough to bore anyone and we went way further than I anticipated! And I even seen a prairie dog 😉

Absolutely fabulous experience, I forgot that I was in the middle of London! The route was so calm and Karl went at everyone's speed. I felt reassured and safe when getting into the boats and learning the basics and when other boats came through the canal.
