Whoosh Explore Canoe Club run Canoe hire and paddling sessions on The River...

Whoosh Explore Canoe Club run Canoe hire and paddling sessions on The River Stort and local rivers in Hertfordshire and Essex. We have a great fleet of canoes and touring kayaks which are great for learning to paddle with our 'Go Canoeing' activities and events. Join our Saturday morning paddle club to take part in a wide range of river tours and trails or join one of our trips on local rivers at a weekend. Get a group of friends together for a paddle where we will help you develop paddling skills and get qualifications in paddle sport. Our team of coaches work with you to ensure that you have a relaxing and enjoyable paddle on the river without having all the hassles associated with buying and touring with your own canoe or Kayak.

For New customers we recommend booking onto one of our Saturday morning sessions for some additional coaching on paddling techniques where we have fully qualified British Canoeing Coaches available on the water with the group at all times. We always aim to coach inexperienced paddlers with a detailed briefing prior to our paddling sessions and suggest that unconfident paddlers join... More

Kayaks come with rudders so are quite easy to control and you'd have to be pretty reckless to capsize! For those that want they have a Saturday club you can join. Road to venue is very bobbly so don't take your sportscar... More

Bought a Groupon deal to experience Kayaking and have to say all of our group loved it and can highly recommend Whoosh! After a quick briefing and the guy joining us up the river to the first lock was happy to leave us to our own devices, We went from base to Burnt Mills Lock back to Harlow Mill Lock... More
