Hire a Stand Up Paddleboard or Kayak!

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. We have scheduled sessions which in term time are predominantly Wed/Thurs evening and Saturday/ Sunday, extra sessions are added usually the week or Sunday before the new week – the extra sessions are dependant on availability as we have schools/groups throughout the day during term time. In the summer holidays, we will have scheduled hire sessions on every day.

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. You must be able to swim 25m.

We provide the equipment, a buoyancy aid that must be worn. Also under 16’s must wear a helmet provided. Wetsuits can be hired for an additional cost of £4.

We 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.

The changing rooms and toilets are open AFTER your activity. You’ll need to get changed into a wetsuit outside (if you have hired one). If you do hire a wetsuit, it’s best to wear shorts & a t-shirt or gym attire so it’s easy to get on. After your activity, you can use the changing rooms to shower/get dry. This is to allow a cleaning period between each session. 

Please note the cancellation notice for this session is strictly 5 days, if you are unsure you’ll be able to make it, we recommend that you wait until closer to the time to book. To cancel, you must request a refund through EOLA and also email the centre – Our booking system does not let us transfer any bookings over, so you must request a refund to change the booking (within the notice period)
