These sessions are perfect if you want to practice your skills or just have some fun. Suitable for families, friends, and individuals! Each session is 60 minutes long, you'll get a brief and a quick demo on how to paddle before you make your way out onto dock 8.

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 must be ON the water with an adult ( ratio of 1 adult to 2 children). All participants must have water confidence and can swim at least 50m.

We provide the equipment including a buoyancy aid that must be worn. You must bring closed toe shoes that can get wet (trainers etc) NO flip flops or sliders.

Under 16's must wear a helmet which is provided. Wetsuits can be hired for an additional cost of £4. Pre-booked wetsuit hire cannot be refunded on the day.

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.
