Water Sports Taster Sessions
Try kayaking, canoeing, stand-up paddle boarding, windsurfing or sailing for £35+VAT per person for a minimum of 4 participants. We make sure you’re fully instructed so you can have a great time! Call us to get a quote and book.

Boat Hire
Our boat Hire at Trafford Water Sports Centre is available during School Holidays, Weekends & Bank Holidays with last hire at 4pm.  

With no experience or advanced booking required, you can be entirely spontaneous on that weekend where you have nothing planned! Just give us a call before you arrive and we can let you know what is available!

We won’t leave you without a paddle. You will be completely kitted out with paddles, waterproof cag, buoyancy aid and helmets. You may want to bring extra clothes and a towel for after your activity so the drive home is a little dryer!
