We had a great time kayaking, friendly, welcoming staff. Definitely recommend! Great for kids - my 3 year old loved it.
The kayaks are so stable, great for kids. Including our 1 year old who had a great time! Super friendly team too led by Jonathan and Karen.
Finally got round to trying SUP boarding today and loved it. Stoked watersports were amazing and Jon was really helpful with his tuition to help us complete novices.
Such a safe, professional set up and perfect weather. The staff were friendly and supportive and the kayAks are stable and fantastic. Such a chilled, peaceful paddle on the Solent. Highly recommended, thank you.
We hired a kayak for my 13 year old daughter who paddled with me while I swam, she absolutely loved it... Despite it being a little bouncy!! The next day she wanted to try a paddle board and again was buzzing after and loved it! The team were great, so helpful, very safe and enthusiastic and am so grateful for being able to give my daughter such a great experience on the water! Thanks guys.
What an amazing day out on the Solent friendly people so helpful cant wait to get out again.
What a fabulous experience we have just had !! It was very windy and wet, the instructors were so brilliant, encouraging and helpful, the two children who went on the kayaks had a really long fun time and two other people in our party even had a free ride on the rib!! The children haven’t stopped talking about it,and after hot showers and hot chocolates are ready to go again!!

Weather, tides & current
The nature of the Solent and British weather means that unfortunately sometimes strong winds (Beaufort force 5+) and rain spoil our fun and stop us operating. It's best to keep an eye on our Facebook page or contact us if you are unsure.
The average water temperature in the Solent in July – September is 18°C, which is about ten degrees colder than most indoor swimming pools. Even in the peak of summer the water can feel cold. Please make sure you dress appropriately.
Our friendly team are there to keep you safe and to make sure everyone has a great time on the water. It is important that you listen to them and show them the same respect you would expect to receive. We will not tolerate abuse towards our staff.
