Welcome to Bristol's

All-Aboard! Watersports Centre

All-Aboard Watersports’ charitable aim is to break down barriers.  We strive to make it possible for everyone in our community to participate in a range of watersports and water related activities in the beautiful and historic Bristol City Docks. This includes people with physical, emotional or cognitive disabilities or  infirmities of all ages who would otherwise, for whatever reason, feel that there were barriers to their participation. We work with individuals, groups, schools, charities and healthcare providers.

Our premises and are fully accessible and we have a specialist fleet of adapted vessels and associated equipment to enable everyone, regardless of physical ability, access to the water.

We are affiliated to the Royal Yachting Association, British Canoeing, British Rowing, British Stand Up Paddleboarding Association, Adventurous Activities Licencing Authority and we are an Approved Activity Provider for the Duke of Edinburgh Award.  We are an accredited RYA Training Centre and an RYA Sailiability Centre of Excellence.

Browse through our website to see the variety of opportunities there are for everyone to access the water, and use our online booking system to secure your place.  For bespoke bookings, or if you are a school or group or have special requirements please contact us.

We are proud to work with health providers and charities to offer the benefit of watersports as a means of rehabilitation.  All our instructors are skilled at working with people who face additional challenges and support them in discovering what they are able to achieve.
