Youth, Family & Adult / Corporate Groups

If you're looking for a fun and interesting group activity for a birthday party or just want to try something different with a group of friends, family or colleagues in the great outdoors, our paddlesport sessions offer lots of fun and excitement and let you experience a different side of London from the picturesque Regent's Canal!

All of our paddlesport sessions are run by friendly, experienced British Canoeing-accredited instructors who'll 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 instructors, along with use of boats, paddles and buoyancy aids.

Minimum 1.5 hour session - time flies when you're having fun paddling! All sessions start with a safety brief, buoyancy aid fitting and bankside introduction. Session times include getting on / off the water and changing (we strongly recommend that all participants arrive in their paddling clothes to maximise time on the water).
