Go Canoeing Sessions

The Cuckmere Valley Canoe Club runs a number of Go Canoeing sessions during the summer to enable people to get a taster of what we do at the club. If you are interested in joining the Canoe Club but want to know what its like before joining or simply want a one off go in a kayak then come along to one of our Go Canoeing sessions. All equipment is supplied apart from wetsuits. Please note: there is no commercial hire of kayaks/canoes at Cuckmere Haven.

The table below shows the times & dates that the Go Canoeing sessions will run along with the session organiser. If you are interested in attending a session please contact the organiser to book your place.

You must be pre-booked on one of these sessions to attend!!

Please note no children under 8 years old will be accepeted.

To avoid disappointment, you must book in advance via our website, we will unfortunately have to turn away people if they haven't booked due to the limit on numbers for safety reasons.

Location: Cuckmere River. Entrance to the Seven Sister's carpark is directly opposite the Visitor Centre on the left side of the A259 if driving from Eastbourne. Drive to the back of the carpark and there is a small separate carpark next to a stone building. Park here and you won't have to pay fees.

There are changing/toilet facilities in the Centre building. Wear clothes/ shoes you don't mind getting wet and bring a towel and change of clothes for after. The session will only be cancelled if the weather is particularly inclement. Please ensure children are wearing appropriate clothing (legs/arms covered unless the weather is very warm). Kitting up is from 6.00pm and we get on the water when everybody is ready. The session is completed by 8pm.

Go Canoeing Sessions Cost: £12 Per Person*

Note: These sessions are designed as an introduction to canoeing and our club for prospective members. If you enjoy the taster session we invite you to consider joining the club. In order to ensure space for new prospective members we limit attendance at Go Canoeing - Come Try it Sessions to a maxium of 1 session only.
