Night Kayak on the Thames

Kayak in central London on the Thames. Professional guides and kayak equipment included. Whether you've kayaked before or not everyone is welcome.

Start Point

Moo Canoe HQ, Limehouse Basin (behind Limehouse DLR), E14 7JZ. See picture of the start point below!

Kayak to Greenwich (UNESCO world heritage waterfront) under the expert guidance and supervision of our friendly, experienced instructors. Pass within splashing distance of Canary Wharf and London’s Docklands whilst enjoying a unique perspective on this fascinating stretch of the Thames. This trip takes place in super stable two-man kayaks. We’ll finish for dinner at Cutty Sark pub for dinner on the Greenwich waterfront.

Who is it for?

This trip is perfect for groups of friends, colleagues, couples or individuals alike. Even complete novices are welcome. We schedule trips around the tide to ensure that it assists you making this an enjoyable introduction to the Thames.

What should I wear?

Try to arrive in the clothes you want to wear on the water as we have limited changing facilities and this will save time. You should remain dry throughout your experience. However, it’s a good idea to bring along a warm layer and a full change of clothes just in case.

Equipment Provided:

Buoyancy Aids

Paddles

Lights when required

Jackets

Over-trousers

Finish Point and dinner in Greenwich

The trip will finish around 9.30pm at the Cutty Sark pub, 4-6 Ballast Quay Greenwich, SE10 9PD. We then plan to have dinner (optional and not included in the price). 

We have booked a table and negotiated a special deal of £13.50 for main course and a drink. We will then make our travel arrangements home e.g Maize Hill or Greenwich DLR.

  • Madoc

    There's been a glitch in the Meet up system. I'm afraid only those that have already paid are booked in for this event. I've unrsvp those that were accidentally added to the list by Meet Up. Sorry for any confusion

    • Delphine T

      Hi there! Thanks for the info. Have been told a slot had opened and I was in for this meetup 6 days ago. Does that mean I'm actually out? If i'm in where can I arrange payment and can I bring a plus one (paid for of course). Ta! Delphine

    Can I bring a plus one to take one of the spots? I don't know how to do it on meetup?!

    January 31, 2014

    • Madoc

      You maybe be able to do a plus one on your RSVP. If not your friend may need to sign up direct if and when a spot pops up. Hope this helps and to see you on the 20th

    Hi Madoc, Travel arrangements will be difficult for me on 4th Feb. Does some one want my place?

    Hi Madoc. I have just RSVPed for this event.
    I am a complete novice so a bit nervous and excited at the same time.

    January 9, 2014

    • Madoc

      Glad to hear it. Excited and nervous is a perfect combination. You will be well looked after by some experienced guides who specialise in Thames trips. I'm sure you'll love it!
