Go Canoeing Sessions

The Cuckmere Valley Canoe Club runs a number of Go Canoeing sessions during the summer to let you get a taste of what we do. A great way to "try before you buy" or rather "try before you join"! Or, the perfect chance to have a fun, one-off evening of paddling.

All equipment is supplied apart from wetsuits. People usually wear t-shirt, shorts and shoes that are okay to get wet.

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

Please note, children must be a minimum of 8 years to attend.

To avoid disappointment, you must book in advance, 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 you will see our Barn. Please note it is a pay & display car park so check the times.

There are changing/toilet facilities in the Barn. Wear clothes/ shoes you don't mind getting wet and bring a towel and change of clothes for after. Please ensure children are wearing appropriate clothing (legs/arms covered unless the weather is very warm).


Wednesday 18:00 - 20:00 - Every two weeks.

We begin on 29 May, please book the session you want from the list below.

Cost:  £15 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 maximum of 1 session only.

*Please note we are unable to refund sessions bookers cancel less than 7 days before the session date. The session will only be cancelled by us if the weather is really inclement. Booking can be transferred to another date (subject to availability) up to 48 hours before original booked session time. We are unable to offer refunds for non attendance.
