Why supervised?

Sessions can be from 1 hour to 3 hours. If you are new to the sport or you would like one of our team to take your children out onto the water whilst you watch from the bank, then look no further. We offer supervised paddles, one of the team can come out with your group and look after you whilst you paddle. We will give you some hints and tips on the way so you can get the most out of your session. If you want us to hang back in the background so we don’t cramp your style, we can also do that. However, we will always be close by if you need us.
