Private Hire

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 kayaking sessions are available for private hire at amazing rates!

All of our kayaking 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.

Adult Groups

For Adult Groups (all participants must be aged 16+), our instructors work at a supervision ratio of no more than 1:10 to maximise your enjoyment and safety on the water. Sessions are charged depending upon the size of your group and how long you'd like to paddle for.

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!

• £80 per hour for groups of up to 10 adults (all participants must be aged 16+)
• £120 for a 1.5 hour session for up to 10 adults

• £50 per hour for smaller groups of 1 - 5 adults (all participants must be aged 16+)
• £75 for a 1.5 hour session for 1-5 adults

• Larger groups charged per hour, per instructor
• £160 for up to 20 adults for 1 hour and multiples thereof
• £240 for up to 30 adults for 1 hour and multiples thereof

You could also include 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 without jumping in a kayak! Both of our canal boats can accommodate up to 12 passengers, with prices starting from £90 per hour for Black Pearl or £120 per hour for Pirate Prince.
