Santa Paddle

Greater London

This stand up paddleboard session is for confident Active 360 paddlers only! This is a for more confident paddlers who would like to go for a longer paddle up the Regents Canal towards Camden. The session will start at Paddington Basin before navigating the Maida Hill tunnel. This is not normally navigable by unpowered craft so you should be confident to paddle without guidance if you would like to join this session, although there will be a qualified instructor guiding through the tunnel. Lights will be needed and we do have lights but please bring a head torch is you have one as these are much easier to turn on and off before and after the tunnel.The session will start with a safety briefing before heading out on the water.

Weather conditions

Whilst we endeavour to carry out our SUP sessions, minimum numbers, instructor availability and weather conditions (If it is very windy or there is torrential rain meaning poor visibility) may mean we have to reschedule your lesson. We will always contact you to advise you as soon as we are able to discuss the options with you.


What to bring

PLEASE DRESS WARM! Windproof/Waterproof clothing is ideal! Avoid denim or cotton where possible (anything that can get heavy when wet and will not keep you warm). Thermals, fleeces/layers are great.

Requirements

You will need to shower / wash hands thoroughly after the session if you have fallen in or been splashed and need to ensure any open cuts are covered.

We will also need to know of any recent injuries prior to the session.

Itinerary

The session will start with some land-based training at our base in Paddington Basin, before getting onto water and piercing through the heart of London on the Grand Union Canal. We will pass through iconic London landmarks such as Little Venice. After stopping for a short break, we will return to base. You will have the opportunity to keep paddling during this break if preferred.

CANCELLATIONS AND/OR CHANGES MADE BY ACTIVE360


1. Cancellations by Active360 

We very rarely need to cancel or postpone sessions due to inclement weather, adverse river conditions or circumstances beyond our control e.g. unexpected river closures, red flag warnings etc. In such situations we will offer an alternative day/time at no extra charge accommodating your requirements as much as possible or a credit note for future booking if you are unable to make immediate alternative plans.  

Refunds will be considered in some circumstances but these are only made on individual basis.  

Weather conditions in the UK are changeable and we are used to operating in various conditions. When the conditions are not favourable we may contact you in advance to see whether you still wish to continue with your booking or you would rather postpone. 

We are not able to accommodate customers’ weather preferences and we have run some of our best and memorable sessions in challenging conditions e.g. rain and/or wind. 

Please share your concerns with us and we will be happy to discuss with you and make any reasonable adjustments to ensure you have an enjoyable experience.  

* All our business clients are advised to take out insurance against cancellation of event. Individual clients may wish to consider exploring this option. 

2. Changes to group sessions by Active360

Active360 reserves the right to reschedule timetabled group sessions due to low client demand (min. number of participants not reached) or instructor unavailability. Alternative dates will always be offered to customers at no extra charge.
