Our Activities

Basic Paddling on the Thames

This is where you can learn basic skills, improve your fitness and explore the Thames Tideway around West London. We run regular social paddles on weekends or after work through from Spring until Autumn. These sessions are always led by Canoe England qualified coaches and all equipment is provided. We often finish our sessions by going for a drink in one of the great selection of local riverside pubs (we have three of London’s best riverside pubs within 200 metres).

Extended Trips on the Thames

If you are an ambitious paddler and fancy doing something more you can join us for a longer trip, for instance into Central London past the London Eye or to Richmond or Teddington.

Pool Sessions

Trips to Thames Weirs and other Rivers

Once you have learned to roll your kayak and have all the basic skills in place, the real adventure begins. We will invite you to join our weir and river trips. Some of these are half a day to a location further up the Thames e.g. Henley, Marlow and others are further afield to mountain rivers such as Dart and Tryweryn.

Special Evenings/Events

These combine paddling with a special occasion such as Halloween or a Fireworks Night Paddle on the river. We also offer social paddles where you can go out for a trip on the river followed by a social evening or a fun evening to the local comedy club.
