Group & Family Sessions

If you're looking for fun and adventure or just want to try something different with a group of friends, family or colleagues in the great outdoors, our paddlesport sessions are available for private hire at amazing rates!

All of our paddlesport sessions are run by friendly, supportive British Canoeing-accredited instructors who will help you get the most of your time on the water, whether you're an absolute beginner or a more experienced paddler. We offer a choice of craft (kayaks, canoes sit-on-tops and/or bell-boats), with boat sizes and types suitable for all ages and abilities. Group rates include the use of boats, paddles and buoyancy aids.

Minimum 1.5 hour session to give you plenty of time on the water - time flies when you're having fun paddling! All sessions start with a safety brief, buoyancy aid fitting and bankside introduction.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have adapted our services and activities to comply with government and National Governing Body guidelines on group sizes and physical/social distancing, with robust cleaning and hygeine protocols and COVID-19 Risk Assessments in place to minimise risk to our visitors, staff and volunteers. Actvities may be reviewed or cancelled at short notice in the event that national guidance changes and/or any COVID-19 issues arise. Contact us if you require more information.
