Providing water-based activities in Bristol since 1974

All-Aboard is a Watersports Charity. Our aim is to break down barriers and make it possible for everyone in our community to participate in a range of watersports such as sailing, kayaking, canoeing, rowing, paddleboarding, powerboating and other water related activities in the beautiful and historic Bristol City Docks. Our centre and activities are fully accessible and delivered by a highly trained team of instructors, staff and volunteers.

Make a Donation

We receive no support from central or local government, nor do we have any other form of guaranteed funding. Donations from supporters are a vitally important part of the charity’s finances, allowing us to continue to provide watersports sessions at reasonable cost to those facing challenging circumstances.
