Private and custom bookings
Private and custom bookings can offer you many things. A day of intensive coaching tailored to your needs. The opportunity for an adventure with a select group of friends or family. The chance for club members to train together. Whatever you want from the time, we can provide it for you.
Private bookings can be for a single person for a half-day, a multi-day expedition for up to 6 people, group coaching in tidal races, a set of coaching days for club paddlers to gain qualifications or for club coaches to be mentored, and many other things. Bookings are dependent on availability, and we strongly recommend getting in touch as early as possible to book, especially during the summer months.
We generally work on a ratio of 1:6, though this may drop to 1:4 for advanced conditions. Groups of more than 6 people should get in touch to discuss options. We do not run expeditions for more than 6 people due to the environmental impact, and we do not operate with groups larger than 12 at any one time. Half days are limited to 6 people.
NGB affiliated clubs
Clubs affiliated with any of the British Canoeing Home Nations can benefit from discounted rates for groups of up to 6 people as follows:

These rates include use of any equipment required (including drysuits and kayaks) and SKO facilities. For NGB course provision it does not include course fees.
Prices include all equipment and outer clothing, as well as tent, sleeping mat and cooking equipment if required on expeditions. We do not provide food, but if you are looking for that extra special day we can put you in touch with cafes specialising in local produce.
