מה נעשה

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.

מידע על הארגון: 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.

זוהי חוויה של אחריות חברתית, שבה 100% מהתשלום על החוויה מועבר אל The Pirate Castle.

איפה נהיה?

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.

Had an amazing experience, booked it as a activity date with my boyfriend and we both had amazing time even though we not had any experience with kayaking before. It was very easy, Karl was an excellent host and we well well looked after. Such a friendly atmosphere and feel privilege to be able to discover a bit of London from that point of view.

Don't hesitate to book this incredible experience down the hidden London canals! I learned a lot about the history of the canals, the mission of pirate castle, saw some wildlife, and got a peaceful workout in to boot. As an added bonus, I really enjoyed my conversation with Beate - she is an inspirational person and kindred spirit. She also gave me a lot of personalized tips for where to go next in my London exploring. Would highly recommend and will book again next time I'm in town.

A great experience all round. I got to know more about Camden’s history and paddle through the canals on a beautiful autumn day. Couldn’t have asked for more. Thanks Kal!

The experience was amazing for me as a biginner. Our host Karl interduction was simple and easy to follow. His guidance though the canal and boots, explanation during the Trip as well as the locations were great and informative. It was a day and price well spent.
