Seapoint Canoe Centre – Paddling With Purpose


Seapoint Canoe Centre, a registered charity, is celebrating 30 years of teaching paddlesport, and has been hosting thousands of people on canal, river and sea.

Using paddlesport activities, the centre helps people of all ages and backgrounds grow their physical skills alongside character development, working with others, learning to lead and training to coach.

Qualified friendly coaches provide instruction in kayaks, sessions are designed to help paddlers achieve British Canoeing awards or the equivalent awards on the Paddlepower scheme. We coach towards Start, Discover and Explore Paddlesport awards on the canal, then progress to a Personal Performance Award on the sea.  The centre offers courses for instructors and paddlesport workshops.

Paddlesport is one of the best outdoor gyms, to keep active and fit. Weekly 2 hour group sessions take place on Thursdays and Saturdays, or experienced paddlers can join one of our seasonal river and sea journeys.  Private groups can choose from one-to-one lessons, corporate team-building days, youth groups, birthday parties etc. We split up into groups determined by age and ability. There is often an emphasis on games for the youngest learners and technical skill for those that are serious about paddle-sport.

Paddlesport provides an activity that appeals to those who are not “sporty” or who may not enjoy team sports. This is very important in inspiring the currently inactive to find ways of enjoying exercise. Paddlers always enjoy their time on the water, learning new skills, growing in confidence, perseverance and fitness. Several have gone on to train as coaches and volunteer in other ways at the centre.

As well as tutored sessions, we offer hiring and touring on the sea and canoe, in a variety of paddlesport craft.
