We’ve been catching up with Laura from London Kayak Tours who has told us a little more about the drive behind the company! It seems Kayaking is the ideal activity for dating – keep reading to find out more!


Q. How did your passion for Kayaking begin?


A. I am from New Zealand, so typically like the outdoors and have kayaked from an early age in NZ! I like the pace of kayaking, it is adventurous and different without being too difficult for anyone. I like that it is ideal for novices and open to anyone trying out something fun, unique and active.


Q. What would you say is the best thing about seeing London from a kayak?


A. Seeing London from a kayak offers a completely unique view of the wonderful capital. It is a great place to observe the hustle and bustle of the city, whilst paddling gently down the river. The river offers a much slower pace and is much more peaceful. It is also a great position to observe some world-famous historical landmarks such as Windsor Castle and Hampton Court Palace. We see everything from a unique angle.


Q. What do you enjoy most about working on the River Thames?


A. It is great to do an activity I love and make a successful business out of this passion. I enjoy watching the changing seasons from a river view as well as being able to have an up-close view of river wildlife. It is fantastic being able to race alongside swans, kingfishers and ducks.


Q. Do you have any funny/ embarrassing stories to share?


A. We have had two marriage proposals and regularly take out stags and hens for their fun day out.


We have had some good dating stories, some successful relationships. We had one gentlemen bring a few different dates out kayaking with us. It was like his regular dating venue for a while.


Q. Have you ever had any celebrities take part in the tours?


A. Yes, we have had Natalie Imbruglia, Sunita Shroff and Emma Catherwood previously from Holby City.


Q. Is there anything you would like to add or share that has not been covered?


A. If you haven't been on a London Kayak Tour then you must! Our visitors have given us some great reviews on Trip Advisor. Do have a look at these and some of our pictures and videos at www.londonkayaktours.co.uk. We continue to have fun with this business and encourage everyone to try this at least once!
