  • Age Limit: Suitable for ages 7+ (children aged 5-7 can go in a tandem kayak with someone aged 14+)
  • Price: £30 per person


Your kayaking adventure begins with a brief 15-minute introduction to get you kitted out with all the necessary gear. Then, it’s time to hit the lagoon for 90 minutes of paddling fun.

You’ll learn fundamental skills, engage in playful games, and maybe even master a new move or two, all under the watchful eye of our expert instructors.

For the little ones aged 5-7, tandem kayaks are available to ensure they’re part of the fun, too.


Set in the picturesque heart of Perthshire and a quick jaunt from Perth City Centre, we offer an idyllic setting on the River Tay. Our peaceful lagoon and easy access to the river provide a scenic backdrop for your kayaking session.

We will send you the precise meeting point upon booking, but you can view our location on the map at the bottom of this page, and there is more information on how to reach us in the FAQs on this page.


No previous kayaking experience? No worries! Our taster session is designed beginners. Those aged 7+ can kayak solo, and those aged between 5 and 7 can join someone aged 14+ in a tandem kayak, so they don’t miss out on the fun.

We will send you the precise address and postcode upon booking, but here is a summary to help you plan your visit:

  • By Foot: From Perth City Centre, you have two options:
    • Take the scenic riverside walk from Rodney Gardens, noting it can be muddy in winter or a wildflower path in summer. Be mindful of high tide times, as the path isn’t accessible one hour either side of high tide. This path’s conditions can vary.
    • For a firmer path, cross South Street bridge, turn right onto Dundee Road, and follow the pavement directly to the centre.
  • By Car: Use the postcode provided Sat Nav.
    • From Dundee, take A90, then A85, staying on Dundee Rd and look for brown tourist signs.
    • From Perth, go over South Street bridge, right on Dundee Rd/A85.
    • From Edinburgh, take M90, exit at Junction 11 for A85, and follow the signs.
  • By Bike: A cycle lane is available along Dundee Road, suitable for experienced cyclists. You can also follow the riverside walk, but may need to dismount in places. Secure bike storage is planned for the future.
  • By Bus: Perth City Centre has bus stops about a 40-minute walk from our centre. A limited bus service stops at Walnut Grove, a 5-minute walk away, and an electric bus stop is directly outside our centre. Check Google Maps for the latest schedules and stops with the provided postcode.

We monitor the weather closely and will inform you in advance if conditions are unsafe for kayaking. We can reschedule your session for a later date if this is the case. However, a bit of rain and a grey sky won’t stop us. We will only reschedule if the conditions are unsafe.
