Canoeing Kayaking

This One Really Takes The Lake

Come and Experience Fun Water Sports

Canoeing and kayaking are activities that, once tried, go on to become life-long hobbies for those who take part.  At Live for Today, these are both incredibly popular activities that offer challenge as well as chill-out time on our private lake access at the picturesque Ripley Castle Estate in Harrogate.

We offer beginner, intermediate and expert coaching no matter what level you are at and guarantee 100% fun for the full experience of your canoeing or kayaking adventure.

Every session we deliver out in our canoes and kayaks is planned and delivered by a fully qualified and experienced instructor, who will ensure you get nothing but adventure, enjoyment and complete value for money out on the lake.  We will also provide all of your equipment, including canoes and kayaks (of course), wetsuits, buoyancy aids, and helmets for your safety.

We can’t promise you’ll stay dry, but we can guarantee you’ll enjoy yourself.
