We're really pleased to be working with Whitewater The Canoe Centre at Shepperton Marina, where you'll have the chance to try out the latest canoes, kayaks and paddleboards on a fun-filled day on the water.

This day is a brilliant option if you are considering taking up paddling, but don't quite know where to start. With an experienced instructor on-hand and a range of different craft to try, we hope you'll finish the day with a smile on your face and a new passion to pursue. Your instructor will take you through all the foundation skills you need to progress. and make sure you understand safety on the water.
