ON THE WATER!

Are you ready to hit the water? We have a BRILLIANT range of activities located on our private and secluded lake or out on the River Itchen. We’re thrilled to offer such a wide range of water activities for both children and adults, right in the heart of the city. Having access to 4 different waterways, gives us the opportunity to deliver activities and experiences to children, young people & adults that they otherwise wouldn’t get the chance to take part in. Not only are we lucky to have access to these waterways, we’re lucky to be based right in the heart of the city! Making us accessible to everyone!

CANOE

Using our traditional, Canadian style open canoes, participants will get to take to the water and discover how exciting, challenging and fun this activity can be. Working together in twos or threes, these stable craft are a great way to learn and explore, but communication and working together is a must. 

KAYAK

As a specialist water sports centre, we use our fleet of sit-on-top and traditional kayaks to help participants develop new skills and abilities. Using our onsite lake or the nearby River Itchen, our instructors will use games, drills and challenges to improve teamwork, communication and confidence on the water. 

STAND UP PADDLEBOARDING

Stand Up Paddleboarding – or SUP – allows participants to build confidence, find they balance and see the water from a different perspective. Our giant Mega SUP is the perfect group activity, testing your communication and pushing your teamwork skills to the limits!
