At Engage Watersports we specialise in Kayaking, Canoeing, Stand Up Paddleboarding, Raftbuilding. We want people to take advantage of the fantastic opportunities to get on the water in our local area. We work with families and organisations who want to learn together. We also provide a structured yet creative environment where individuals can meet. The key to our approach is to "learn by having fun". We are not here to teach technical ability for the sake of it, but we will develop your technique in a natural way. Our instructors are key to our success, they share our passion for ensuring people develop and enjoy every activity they undertake with us. We are a family run company, our business values are an extension of what is important to us as a family - people, relationships and experiences that help us grow as individuals and as a group.
