What to Bring

What you need to wear on the water will vary depending on the craft you have chosen and the weather conditions on the day below is a list of items we would recommend.   You also need to consider what else you are taking out on the water with you: for example if you are wanting to take your phone or camera with you make sure you have something waterproof to store it in – we do sell dry bags in our shop if you don’t have anything.  If it’s a warm day you may want to take a drink out on the water with you.   Please note that we do not sell any refreshments on site.  However we do have water bottles for sale in the shop which you can fill at our tap.

  • If you are on a paddle board and wanting to borrow a wetsuit you will need to bring Swim wear to go underneath, a non-cotton T shirt and fleece if is cold.
  • The best kit to wear on the water is usually sports clothing as it is warmer when wet and usually dries quickly. Cotton clothing can be uncomfortable when wet & isn’t great at keeping you warm!
  • Towel and warm clothes to put on afterwards
  • A pair of old trainers or water shoes
  • A woolly hat in spring and autumn
  • Peaked hat, sunglasses and sun cream in spring and summer.
  • £1 coin for a hot shower

Please be aware we do not have lockers on site for storage, however we can look after car keys for you.
