            FAQ’s

            What is a drysuit?

            Our top line Palm™ Bora drysuits are the ultimate cold weather protection. The integrated watertight socks and latex wrist and neck gaskets seal you from the outside elements. The result is a watertight layer which fills with your own body heat keeping you both warm and dry. The adjustable storm hood protects you should it rain or snow.

            What if it rains or snows?

            With the right gear, kayaking is fun in any weather. You will be surprised how enjoyable it is to kayak in rain or snow. The drops of water on the lake and snowflakes falling around you make the experience even more special. This will be something you’ll always remember!

            Isn’t it cold in winter?

            Our drysuits will not only keep you completely dry but also toasty warm. We give you thick warm socks to fit inside our neoprene boots and neoprene gloves attached to the paddle keep your hands warm.

            Do people fall in?

            Our kayaks are very stable and falling in is unlikely, but during winter we generally try to avoid falling in, unless you really want to! In case you do, our drysuits keep the water out and our guides help you easily get back into your boat. Trust us, you don’t need to worry about this!

            From our customers

            Super Tag!

            Super Tag gewesen und mit dem Apero riche war es ein perfekter Abschluss!! Danke.

            Unser Team-Event im Februar auf dem Brienzersee war grossartig. Unsere Gruppe von 11 Personen (alle noch nie zuvor in einem Kajak) wurde wintertauglich eingekleidet, professionell instruiert und sicher übers Wasser geführt. Wir haben uns alle rundum wohl gefühlt. Die Guides Sean, Barrie und Amy haben uns begleitet und bestens unterhalten. Eine Kajaktour im Winter können wir allen empfehlen. Nochmals herzlichen Dank für die tolle Organisation, die unkomplizierte Kommunikation und den von A-Z tollen Event. Wir hatten riesigen Spass bei euch.

            Sehr empfehlenswert

            Ich habe kürzlich eine Veranstaltung bei Hightide gebucht, und sie war ein voller Erfolg! Die Aktivitäten waren herausfordernd und fesselnd, und unsere Guides waren energiegeladen und sachkundig. Die Location in Interlaken war die Kirsche auf dem Sahnehäubchen. Sehr empfehlenswert für einen unterhaltsamen Tag ausserhalb des Büros.
