For most boats, no previous experience is necessary.

Our friendly and experienced staff will be able to advise on what boat is suitable for you and provide any instruction necessary to get you out enjoying the water. For those seeking to develop their skills further, our staff also offer taster sessions and training courses throughout the year.

In addition to our pre-scheduled events throughout the year, out Instructors can also offer private tuition. Please see our Events section for the next available date or contact us for more information.

If you fancy something more challenging our friendly, experienced team can provide activities for small or large groups aged 8 years upwards. We welcome participants of all abilities to our group experience - the focus is on trying new things, having fun and learning new skills along the way. Visit our Groups page for more information.
