Pay and Play Sessions

Do you fancy an hour or so on the water? Want to try paddling with your mates/family?

These sessions are a great way to dip your toe into the wonderful world of canoeing and have a play to see if you like it.

You can book a session for an hour, or if you are feeling adventurous two hours.

These sessions are not coaching sessions but you will be supervised from the bank. You can choose between sit on top kayaks, stand up paddleboards or katakanu and must stay in sight of the building at all times, staff will advise the area that you are able to paddle in.

Taster Sessions

Our Taster Sessions are an hour of activitiy in a craft of your choosing most commonly Kayak, Canoe, Stand-Up Paddleboard or KataKanu and are run by a qualified instructor. You can use them as an introduction to the sport or come back a number of times for an hour on the water with an instructor to supervise and teach some skills, you can book up to 12 people per session. If you would like some specialist instruction ask about our Coaching Sessions.

Additional Needs Sessions

Our additional needs sessions are for anyone who would like to come along. For those with complex needs we would advise a one to one session before joining the group as a taster of the activitiy. Please contact us if you would like any further information about these Aditional Needs sessions.


We run trips every few months each year, please check our bookings page for details of the next trip. Some of our more regular trips are to the River Cherwell, River Medway and the Kennett & Avon Canal.
