We're about gliding on water - kayaking, stand-up paddling, surfski, races, expeditions. Whether you're here for the skyline or peak performance, paddling is for you.

This is the only boathouse to take people on the City's scenic waters. Our classes and trips can't be simulated indoors and are devised from decades of touring on elite vessels.

We go out as a group. On Beginner trips, take in the sweeping views at your leisure and have an amazing time.

On Intermediate and Advanced trips, perfect your technique on top-end watercraft. Full body paddling is a high-intensity cardio workout and competitive sport. The most difficult trips require speed and endurance through surf, wind, and current.
