It’s perfect for groups looking to spend more time on the water and enjoy the natural beauty of the area. Note, that this is now our standard venue and we’d need to discuss it first.

Paddleboarding is a fun, relaxing, and social activity that adds a unique twist to a hen party. Our beginner SUP experience on the Chichester Canal can accommodate groups of up to 20 people. In no time, you’ll be standing on the water, chatting with friends, and making unforgettable memories.

After the session, you can enjoy a small picnic in a nearby field, complete with cake and drinks That said we have lots of people looking for an event that is an  alcohol-free celebration, but it’s down to you if you choose to enjoy some champagne after paddling with us. There’s also a charming café and pub nearby if you prefer a spot to relax.

The SUP Guided Tour

For a more adventurous paddleboarding experience, our guided tour in Chichester Harbour is a fantastic option. This longer session is perfect for groups with some paddling experience. As you explore the harbour, you’ll be surrounded by nature, potentially spotting seals, birds, yachts, and stunning waterside homes. It’s an amazing way to spend a few hours on the water, creating lasting memories with your friends.
