Want to have a go at paddling? Every Saturday morning at Grove Ferry taster sessions are running, providing you the chance to have a go in either a canoe or kayak in a light hearted fun, instructor lead session. The session consists of basic skills needed to help keep you in control on the water, taught through a series of games and challenges to make sure you get the most from your session.


Our experienced coaches will guide you through the basics of the paddling world, to develop your skill base and knowledge to give you the confidence on the water in a fun and safe environment. All within the beautiful nature reserve of Stodmarsh abundant with wild life, there is a children’s play park next to our launch point. If you want to make the most of the area there is a cool campsite just a short stroll away.
