London Kayak Company is led by Harry Whelan who has over 20 years experience of leading groups on the Tidal Thames, solo paddling and has circumnavigated both Ireland and Britain by kayak previously holding the record for the fastest times around both countries. All London Kayak Company guides who lead trips have a minimum of five years guiding experience on the Tideway and regularly contribute to improving the safety of kayaking on the Thames.  

We are a strong team who are committed to keeping you safe on the river. London Kayak Company is 100% Port of London Compliant and holds a British Canoeing quality mark.

Our calendar can be found here.

Our bookings are made using Eventbrite, which can be found here.

As of 20/12/20 in line with Tier 4 restrictions London Kayak Company is unable to run trips till London returns to a lower tier level. The start-stop nature of working is incredibly frustrating, we will be operational as soon as possible. London Kayak Company will still advertise trips on the calendar and extend any gift vouchers sold. Your safety has always been our number 1 priority. You can get us on the phone and by email. Stay safe and see you on the Tideway soon.
