Group Sessions

If you're looking for fun and adventure or just want to try something different with a group of friends, family or colleagues in the great outdoors, our paddlesport sessions are available for private hire at amazing rates!

All of our paddlesport sessions are run by friendly, supportive British Canoeing-accredited instructors who will help you get the most of your time on the water, whether you're an absolute beginner or a more experienced paddler. We offer a choice of craft (kayaks, canoes and/or bell-boats), with boat sizes and types suitable for all ages and abilities. Group rates also include the use of paddles, buoyancy aids and kagoules (in case of wet weather), shower and changing facilities.

As all sessions start with a safety brief, buoyancy aid fitting and bankside introduction, we recommend a minimum 1.5 hour session to give you plenty of time on the water - time flies when you're having fun paddling!

ADULT KAYAKING

For Adult Groups (participants aged 18+), our instructors work at a supervision ratio 1:10 to maximise your enjoyment and safety on the water.

1.5 hour session, 1-10 participants = £150.00
1.5 hour session, 11-20 participants = £300.00
1.5 hour session, 21-30 participants = £450.00

All paddlesport bookings include access to the Club Room for the duration of your session (start/end time as stated on your booking). If you would like to extend your stay, the Club Room and Main Hall are available to hire at an additional cost (subject to availability - standard hire rates apply).

You could also bolt-on a cruise along the Regent's canal on one of our canal boats! Ideal if you're looking for multiple activities - or if some members of your group want to experience the waterway at a more leisurely pace. Both of our canal boats can accommodate up to 12 passengers, with prices starting from £100 per hour for Black Pearl or £130 per hour for Pirate Prince.
