Hourly, half day, day or weekly hire periods are available and you will be provided with all the equipment you’ll need to get out on the water.  You will be given a full safety briefing before you head out on your paddling adventure.  Action cameras and dry bags can also be hired from us. 

Our four person paddle board is great fun for all the family.

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.
