Kata Kanu Hire


Pricing says per person but it is per boat!

KataKanu's are a great way to get onto the water! Holding between 4-6 people these boats are super stable for a paddle around the dock.

A member of our safety team will be keeping a close eye on you but our safety team should only be used on an emergency basis. Ages 8-11 (6-11 for KATA KANU ONLY) must be ON the water with an adult ( ratio of 1 adult to 2 children).

We provide the equipment, a buoyancy aid that must be worn. Also under 16's must wear a helmet provided. Please bring some closed toe shoes you don't mind getting wet i.e. old trainers. NO flip flops/sliders.

Lockers are available inside the centre and are £1 (Returnable), the centre is cashless so please ensure you bring a £1 coin. We also provide boxes to keep your things in and these are kept over by the water in the compounds of the gates. Items are left at the user's risk and Salford Watersports are not held responsible.

Changing rooms are open as normal for use pre-post session
