Kayaking Parties

If you're looking for a fun and interesting group activity for a birthday party or just want to try something different with a group of friends in the great outdoors, our kayaking parties offer lots of fun and excitement and let you experience a different side of London from the picturesque Regent's Canal!

All of our kayaking sessions are run by experienced 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 sizes/types suitable for all ages (from 8 years +) and abilities. The price also includes the use of paddles, buoyancy aids and kagoules (in case of wet weather), shower and changing facilities.

You can also hire our canal level Club Room so that your group can enjoy some well-earned refreshments, play games or simply relax a bit after having fun on the water. We offer a discounted rate of £25 per hour for the Club Room when booked as part of a kayaking party. Alternatively, you could book our characterful Main Hall if you want more space or something more formal (additional charges apply).

As all kayaking 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!
