Have a Go

The best way to find out if paddling is for you is to have a go! No experience is necessary, you just need to be comfortable around water and keen to challenge yourself. We would love you to come down to Victoria Harbour Docklands, any Saturday at 8:30am, to meet us and have a splash around. The best bit? Your first 3 sessions are free! To book a trial please click here.
