Self Launch

If the water is open, you can bring your own paddleboard or kayak to use on our lake for just £5 per half day, which includes use of our changing rooms with hot showers and lockers! You need a buoyancy aid, though – bring your own or hire one from us on the day.

Accessible Watersports

Everything we do here at Trevassack is accessible to all, so if you or a loved one need a helping hand with your mobility to get out on the water, or for those more severely limited, we have lots of safe and fun options available. 

Our staff are experienced with SEND needs and our adapted craft are accessible via pontoon hoists. Or wheelchair-users are welcome to ride on Floaty, our fully accessible, solar-powered platform boat.

Sessions Just For You

If you’d like some instruction in sailing or paddlesports or just some family time afloat, please get in touch and we will create a bespoke lake session to suit your exact needs. 

Our friendly and experienced watersports staff will assist you with skills and tips on how to keep afloat and what to do if you fall in! But the main thing is to have fun while you learn how to operate the equipment safely.
