What you'll do

Explore the historic city of Oxford and surrounding areas from a different perspective!
If you haven’t tried Paddle Boardong before don’t worry! They’re safe stable & fun and you’ll quickly be on the water enjoying getting to grips with the basics of steering, stopping and turning your board either kneeling or standing.
You’ll be provided with a drybag to protect any belongings you’d like to bring with you.
Once you’ve got a handle on the basics you’ll head off on a short trip along the river Thames from Donnington bridge into Oxford, stopping to view the sights and get some pics along the way.
After a break next to the Botanic Gardens and Magdalen College you’ll return past the punts and rowing boats to the start point with the opportunity to have some fun and try some more advanced paddle skills, although you may get wet! ;)

Where you'll be

Starting on a broad calm stretch of the river you’ll paddle upstream toward Folly bridge passing some of the local rowing clubhouses before turning off onto the river Cherwell and passing Christchurch meadow & Cathedral, before arriving at the Botanic Gardens next to Magdalen College and Magdalen bridge - formally a notorious spot for people jumping into the river on May Day morning!
After a short break we’ll retrace our route to the beginning

A lovely quiet evening paddling around Oxford with Paul, my wife and I had never done it before and it was really enjoyable. Paul was an excellent host and will definitely be doing it again.

This was such a lovely experience. Paul is a very calm and helpful instructor, even with the likes of me being very wobbly on the board at first! A lovely way to enjoy Oxford from a different perspective and learn something new along the way. A great first paddle boarding experience, would definitely recommmend.

We both had an amazing Paddleboard trip earlier tonight. Paul was very personable from outset, nothing too much trouble, shared some good tips before we set off & throughout our trip. Some good photo’s taken by host of this picturesque area. We will be recommending to our friends & will be returning.

Can't recommend it enough! What a cool way to see the city for the first time or to see it in another perspective if you are a local. Paul was very helpful and great at teaching us what we had to and worked wonderfully as we all had a wonderful time safely.
