Discover Open Canoeing

Explore & learn skills along the Beaulieu River in open canoes

Discover Open Canoeing

Join us on the Beaulieu River for a day in canoes as we journey along this private estuary. On the way you will receive coaching hints & tips from our experienced canoe coaches. We’ll meet at our canoeing base at Baileys Hard and after getting ourselves kitted up and a discussions about the day we’ll head out onto the river. This is an ideal day for paddlers wanting to start their journey into the Canoeing discipline, or for those with previous experience, a good day to test and develop existing canoeing skills.

This is the perfect day to get to grips with the new British Canoeing Discover award, in touring, and set you up for undertaking the PPA canoeing awards. We do recommend that you have some previous paddling experience as a full day can be a lot of activity for the complete beginner. If you are comfortable in canoes, contact us to discuss the suitability of our explorer days for you.

"Brilliant!"

Went on an intro to sea kayaking. Our instructor Leander gave clear and concise instructions when we took to the water we had a fantastic time. We paused occasionally to take in new skills and tips. By the end, we were truly comfortable in our kayaks. I had never been in a kayak before but now can’t wait to do it again.

"Sea kayaking training"

I attended a sea day and a kayak rolling course. Both days were very well planned, good equipment supplied with excellent coaching and guiding and tailored to the group’s skill and experience level. Very happy, and I have already rebooked for further training courses.

"Rolling a kayak!"

I spent 2 hours learning how to roll a kayak. The instructor gave us clear instructions and was very helpful, spending time with everyone, making sure we all got to grips with the technique.

"A great day out learning new skills"

My friend and I joined a Sea Kayak Explorer Day. Our instructor Steve took us on an enjoyable trip past Old Harry Rocks which gave us the opportunity to try out some more challenging conditions and exercises. We felt that Steve’s affable and engaging character enabled the group to relax and enjoy themselves whilst benefitting from his experience and guidance. We would certainly recommend this trip to anyone looking to improve their kayaking and enjoy a great day out.

"Excellent as always!"

I have been kayaking with Liquid Logistics for many years now, at a rate of once a year! Every session is fun and I always feel safe. I have complete faith in all the instructors. I always recommend these guys and look forward to paddling with them again next year!

"Super helpful"

Steve and Chris were super helpful during my rolling session. They were great at tailoring advice and explaining in an easy to understand way.
