Kayaking and Canoeing in Southampton
Kayaking and Canoeing are two environmentally friendly ways to get fit and have fun exploring. Kayaks are small and stable watercraft, powered using a double bladed paddle.
If you’ve never kayaked before and are unsure about committing to a longer trip, a kayaking taster gets you afloat for a fun and relaxed experience. Kayak centers have a range of boats to help you find the perfect fit, with equipment and guides who’ll inspire confidence from the start. Special prices for families.

The really great thing about Woodmill is that in fact it is the only place in the UK that boasts four different types of water for kayaking and canoeing; a placid water lake, the flowing River Itchen. With so much fun and excitement on offer for all the family, amongst our woodland surroundings, be sure to make Woodmill your next day out.
