SUP Packages

Whether you are new to boarding, or a paddling pro wanting to try before you buy or improve your technique, there is no doubt that you will have fun once you are out on the water. Have a look at our sessions on offer to find the perfect one for you.

Both The Swan Hotel guests and non-hotel guests are welcome and board hire is on a first come, first served basis so on-the-day walk up bookings are available, but please try and book online if you can to save disappointment.

The Paddle Hut Board Hire

includes board hire, leash, paddle, buoyancy aid

  • 2 hours = £30 per person
  • Half Day = £60 per person
  • Full day = £80 per person

Enjoy a relaxing 2 hours of paddleboarding along the River Leven to the foot of Lake Windermere taking in the sights of the beautiful Lake District National Park. Your hire slot includes use of our Red Paddle Co paddleboards (a fantastic all-round inflatable board) along with a height adjustable paddle, coiled safety leash and buoyancy aid each.

We look after all our customers so even if you have been paddleboarding before, we will demonstrate a safety and basic skills briefing to all our hirers before you enter the water to ensure everyone is comfortable, safe, knows the area and is fully prepared for the activity.

Anyone under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult and supervised at all times out on the water. All participants must be able to swim at least 50m. We are happy for children aged 8+ to try using their own paddleboard if conditions are suitable, but anyone younger must be safely positioned sat down on the front of an adult’s paddleboard. Dogs are also welcome to hop on board at no extra cost, but 2 adults are not allowed to share one board (our standard Red Paddle Co 10’6” boards have a maximum rider weight of 95kg and our 10’8” boards are slightly wider and can hold additional weight for those wanting to bring their young children or SUP pups along).

This booking does not include an Instructor coming out with you onto the water - we do advise beginners to have a lesson before paddleboarding on their own. If you would like an Instructor session then please choose one of our groups/private lesson slots.
