About This Guide

Harry Whelan is based in the ‘City of London’ and as well as running his sea kayak tour based business ‘The London Kayak Company‘ on the River Thames, also advises I.S.K.G.A on all kayak based activities for the River Thames. Harry has been guiding professionally on the River for more than twenty years now, but his sea kayaking activities do not only take place on this fast flowing and incredibly busy section of water. Harry has held both the ‘Round Britain’ & the ‘Round Ireland’ speed records at one time or another and is a very experienced and capable ‘Expedition paddler’.

Harry also started Kayaking London, another commercial enterprise that operates on the River Thames and he is often in demand for his advice and services by other users of the River.

Harry has worked as ‘Technical Advisor for the ‘London Kayakathon’ charity event as well as advising many other events on the river.
