Our exciting craft hire provides the perfect water adventure right on your doorstep! Take your pick! We have Stand-Up Paddle Boards (SUPS) and Kayaks to hire for up to 6 hours to escape and discover the calm, historic Bridgwater and Taunton Canal.
We are based at the George Williams Centre, Bridgwater (Somerset), just 10 minutes from Junction 24 of the M5. The unique riverside setting offers free parking, a slip way for launching your own craft and an on-site café.
Craft hire is currently available on Saturdays, between 10:00am and 16:00pm. Booking options range from 1 hour to 6 hours, giving you plenty of time to explore.
Boat users must be aged 8 and over. All users under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
YMCA will be adhering to social distance measures to ensure your safety both around site and out on the water. Bookings will be staggered in 15 minute blocks to keep to these guidelines.
All equipment will be fully sanitised between hire periods and there will be a hand gel station at the entrance of the site available to use.
