Taster Sessions

Coached Taster Sessions/Lessons –

Going out on the water with an instructor for your first time is always a good idea. All of our instructors are national governing body qualified and have a wealth of knowledge across a variety of disciplines, being able to provide, kayak, canoe and paddleboard lessons.

For your first time on the water, they are particularly useful for talking you through your chosen craft, teaching you how to safely get on and off the water, and teaching you the basics of how to get around while on the water.

Alternatively, some people prefer not to be coached too much, and would rather have a guided tour on the river, having an instructor with them to feel more confident.

Coached taster sessions can be run 1:1 or up to 1:8 if you would like to go out as a group, and can be booked online.


Pay and Play –

If you feel confident to go out on the water without an instructor, we offer this rental-like session.

For Pay & Play sessions you can use our:

  • Sit-on-top kayaks
  • Paddleboards
  • Katakanus

The only restriction is that you must stay within sight of the building, giving you a 1000m stretch of river to play with.

Pay & Play is available all year, at a range of times throughout the day.

Under 18s can participate, but must have an adult on the water with them.
