Beginners kayak/canoe sessions at The Argory

Join MYOA for a beginner-friendly kayaking/canoeing session along the Blackwater as part of our Summer of Play

  • Booking essential

Ever wanted to learn to kayak or thought that canoeing looked fun? Now is your chance to join these beginner-friendly sessions at The Argory. Explore the River Blackwater and see The Argory from a new perspective. In these sessions, everything you need will be provided, so it's the perfect opportunity to test out a new sport.

Sessions are open to adults and children over the age of 8. All children will need to be accompanied in a tandem canoe with a guardian. Adults may book a tandem canoe (takes two people) or a single kayak. While we will do our best to make these sessions accessible to all fitness levels, participants will need to be able to get in and out of a kayak and paddle for up to 90 minutes.

Summer of Play is sponsored by Starling Bank.
