Feel closer to Bristol Harbour’s water and wildlife on this free kayaking session. Take part in this low impact, adventurous activity and experience the city like never before, gliding through our iconic harbour on the water. Great for beginners as well as those wishing to improve their paddling techniques, our kayaking sessions are fun, as well as a fantastic way for you to keep active.

When you arrive you will have time meet with your instructor. They will talk with you about the session and the plans for your paddle while they get you kitted out and ready to head on to the harbour.

All of our sessions are led by friendly, experienced instructors who will show you the ropes, keep you safe and make sure you have a great time. All abilities are welcome, from the very first timers to those who love being out on the water.
