We offer kayak and paddleboard hire from Par Beach on St Martin's. You can book your experience online and there are hourly, half day daily and weekly hire periods available.  You can also purchase gift certificates.  All the equipment you’ll need to get out on the water is provided and you will be given a full safety briefing before you head out on your paddling adventure.  Create family memories, have an adventure and explore the beautiful islands at your own pace.  If you need to cancel your booking due to Covid you will receive a full refund. 

There are three uninhabited islands within an easy 25 minutes paddling from Par Beach, which is opposite Higher Town Quay.  See a Neolithic settlement or have an uninhabited island all to yourself!  You may also see seals off the islands of Nornour and Ganilly.  The islands of Tean and Tresco are a little bit of a longer paddle but make for a great day out.  

We have paddle boards to suit all levels of experience.  We  also have four and two person paddle boards which are great fun for all the family so why not share your SUP experience.

We have various hire zones which we will allocate to you depending on the weather, the type of equipment you are hiring and your level of experience.

We are members of the WiSe scheme which educates people out on the water about how to interact with wildlife

All hire is subject to weather and sea conditions and we reserve the right to cancel your booking if we consider conditions to be unsuitable.  Check out our daily Instagram stories during the summer for updates about hiring.
