Why and How we do what we do
Adult Parties




We have been closely following UK Government guidance during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.

Having been closed to all activities since 23rd March 2020, we have implemented specific controls following government recommendations to allow us to operate a basic Pay & Play boat hire and self-launch service.

The key principles we have applied when doing so are:

  • Can we offer a service safely while protecting our staff and customers?
  • What adjustments need to be implemented to control social distancing? 
  • How can we minimise contact with others to take booking and payment?
  • How do we maximise your opportunity to get out exercising with your family?
  • Is there a demand for what we can offer and is it financially practical?

From Saturday 6th June, we can now offer a basic Pay & Play option to individuals and those in the same household. Options will only include Paddleboards, Kayaks, Canoes and Self-Launch* of own craft. 

Specific booked times with limited numbers are bookable online. Please ensure you turn up in time to start your activity at your booked time. Late arrivals and missed bookings cannot be transferred or refunded.

Self-Launch is appropriate for canoes, kayaks, SUPs and Windsurfing that meet the minimum safety standards. Launch bookings must have all their own equipment including their own buoyancy aid. Launch price includes admission of the natural number of people for the vessel. E.g. SUP - One person; Canoe - Two persons; Single Kayak - One person. 

Refunds of advance bookings will not be possible.

Discount and 'Buy One, Get One Half Price' vouchers will not be valid with this limited booking programme.
