New for 2021 we have re imagined some old classicactivities and put a special twist on them! We were also keen to run morecanoeing sessions, so we thought what better way to do that then by launching ournew Canoeing Adventure Trips.

These trips make for the perfect family Adventure day! Prices are based per Canoe, each Canoe is big enough for two parents and one or two little ones. Depending on how big your little ones are, one or two canoes is more then enough for your family. We also offer the option to book out our fleet of six Canoes to yourselves so you can bring along the extended family for a family only adventure!

Meet your Instructor at lake pier for 10:00am, load up yourboats and launch away into the harbour. You’ll paddle along towards Rockley Park,then across to the RSPB reserve and SSSI at Arne. You’ll continue along thesandy beaches of Arne and round into Arne bay. Your Instructor will guid youround some of the small bays, stopping on a beach for a picnic lunch. After lunchyou’ll do some more exploring before heading back to the beach at Lake Pier.Bringing an end to your day of adventure.

What You've Said

Big thank you to Kelvin for our kayaking lesson last week. Whilst the session was great fun (yes even the indelicate attempts practising getting back on our kayaks in deep water), Kelvin was really knowledgeable regarding safety and gave us a lot of tips and practical guidance to help keep us safe on the water. Looking forward to another session soon.

We went kayaking with a fella named Chris. He was awesome and a great tour guide. Very patient with us and gave us plenty of photo opps (gotta do it for the gram y’all) but really let us appreciate the view.

If you’re looking for a great place to kayak and want a fab tour guide who is patient but also a great instructor we’d def recommend him and will be coming back.
