Hen party paddle board Experience & Stags on Chichester Canal

We’ve been so lucky to be part of so many peoples Hen Parties and Stag Do’s over the years.   So many happy faces, laughing and having a great time, mixed in with some other amazing activites that you guys and girls arrange for your short break.

Whether you’re seeking a thrilling experience or a moment of tranquility on the water, a SUP Hen Party or Stag Do promises to be an exhilarating and rejuvenating celebration of friendship and love.

Paddle Party Lessons


What’s not to like about having a great laugh with friends. Joining us for  Hen Party Paddle Board lessons or a bonkers action Stag Do will definitely see you cracking a few laughs out as you get to grips with standing on a wobbly thing on the water and still trying to look cool.

From our experience of running Hen Party and Stag Do paddle board lessons, most of you like to come along mid morning or lunchtime as you’ve been out the night before or have enjoyed a decent breakfast somewhere local.

It offers a unique blend of laughter and outdoor exploration, creating unforgettable memories for the bride to be, groom and friends.

The After Party - Let's eat cake.. we've had people bring lunches, cake, wine - all of which is part of the after paddle workout.  There's a field you can picnic in right by the waters edge.

Join us and enjoy your Party weekend away

Make a paddle board lesson all part of your time away with friends.

fun for boys and girls

Hen party paddle board lesson

Your girls will love this experience, enjoying a fun, but relaxing on the water activity.

We’ve run loads of hen parties over the years, and just love the good vibes and party feel, so why not be the next Hen party group to join us this year.

Most of you are renting a weekend cottage or accommodation down in Chichester, Bracklesham or surrounding areas, so we’re really close and able to fit in with your busy weekend schedule.

We can spend most of the time paddling or split it with a snack stop if you’re up for it, before paddling back to the launch.

Stag party paddle board experience

The Stag do’s are always a bag of laughs.

We’ve had dissolving shorts, jousting competitions, push me pull you – all followed by grub on the grass and a beer.

We can throw in some competitions and on water games if you’re feeling like a legend on the board.

You’ll all have a great time on the water and we can visit a pub half way through the paddle or just carry on paddling and chuck in some races as well.

NOTE: No previous experience required.

paddle party FAQS

After you’ve booked your accommodation, many of you talk to shops like Shore Watersports and Wittering Surf to see what to do in the area. 

They can really help with ideas about the area, but you really need to speak with us if you’re looking to paddle board with your friends and we can then outline what you need to know about our lessons.

Great friends and family paddle boarding experience in Chichester Canal!

Miri Gellert-Shemtov

We had a brilliant session with Ian as part of our friend’s hen do. It was such great fun and well-taught in a simple and engaging way. There were a few of us (myself included!) who were quite apprehensive beforehand but we were put at ease and had such a positive experience. It was a family-run session – Ian was joined in his teaching by his wife and daughter which added a lovely dimension to the team and dynamic. Thank you Amy for helping me far exceed my expectations….! This was a perfect addition to the Hen Weekend!
