Welcome back, we really have missed you!
We want to extend a warm welcome to all of our guests new and old, since we have been closed we have introduced a number of different measures to ensure you have a fun and safe environment to enjoy the water on your return. During Phase 1 of returning to water we are only offering a limited number of people onto the water at any given time and have had to reduce the hire offering as well. This is all controlled and managed by our online booking system, therefore it is paramount that all activities are pre-booked to avoid disappointment on the day.
To help you get back out onto the water we have streamlined our hire offering to ensure we can provide you with the same exceptional service and clean the equipment following the manufacturer guidelines between use. From Friday 17th July 2020 we will offer three, two hour blocks of hire per day with sessions starting at 9.30am, 11.45am and 2pm, you will have the opportunity to Canoe - or Kayak (sit on top) - or SUP (stand up paddleboard).STOP PRESS! Due to the popularity of hire sessions since we have relaunched we have now made an extra evening session available between 4.15pm and 6.15pm on Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays!! We have also taken delivery this summer of a new fleet of Pedal Boards - these are great fun, providing extra stability and speed and due to their popularity are available in 1 hour sessions only. To book a session please click the 'Book Now' button below.
