You'll be sharing your instructor/s, but you'll be sure to meet some interesting people to add to the experience. The session will start with a safety briefing and some land-based training before heading out on the water for a guided tour. You'll be able to ask for technique advice and tips along the way. Don't be shy!
We ask you to join a beginners session for your initial session with us, before coming along to our reduced rate returning paddlers sessions. These sessions run at set times during the week. See our online calendar for more information.
Prices for beginners lessons (your first lesson with us): 1.5hrs - £49, 2hrs - £59, 3hrs - £69.
Prices for returning paddlers (every time you come back): - 2hrs - £25, 3hrs - £30, we reserve the right to modifications on special routes.
Why not have an instructor/s all to yourself / group? We can arrange these sessions at a time to suit you. We run these sessions primarily as a guided tour, and can include some of the following options if requested: short races, technique training / exercises, games, or a short drink-stop. We usually create private sessions on request, so please get in touch if you'd like us to create one at a time and place to suit your requirements.
Prices for small groups (1-4): 1.5hrs - £69 for the first person and £29 for each subsequent person. 2hrs - £89 for the first person and £39 for each subsequent person.
Prices for larger groups (5+): 2hrs - £99 for the first person and £39.00 for each subsequent person. 3hrs - £129.00 for the first person and £40.00 for each subsequent person.
We can also create bespoke SUP parties, corporate events, hen and stag parties and team building events for you. These provide the perfect opportunity to escape the office with your group and create unforgettable memories. We can even include clean-up of the local waterways. For more information, see the SUP parties and events page.
More information and prices are available on our equipment hire page.
SUP HIRE - You can hire from our Paddington base, if you have previous experience and can demonstrate how to safely manoeuvre a paddleboard. You must take the Grand Union Canal route, as you are not allowed to traverse The Maida Hill Tunnel on the Regent's Canal.
To hire on the tidal Thames (Kew Bridge / Putney), you must first take a beginners lesson, regardless of your ability. You may then have to join a number of returning paddlers sessions (same price as a hire) before being able to hire on your own. Navigation limits apply downstream of Putney Bridge on the Tideway.
You can also hire equipment to take away with you on holiday.
CANOE HIRE (Paddington only) - No previous experience necessary. You must take the Grand Union Canal route, as you are not allowed to traverse The Maida Hill Tunnel.
