CANI Recreational Paddles 2022


CANI recreational paddles are suitable and open to all! From first time paddlers to competing professionals. We are delighted each year, to see individuals, families, clubs and paddlers of all ages and abilities taking part.

You can take in the views from a water-level perspective and see a wonderful variety of wildlife you wouldn’t normally experience. These social paddles offer perfect opportunities to get to know other paddlers making them ideal for individuals but also lots of fun for the whole family.

They are a great way of taking in our beautiful outdoors, so dust down your boat or SUP and come and join us! If you don’t have a boat, open canoes and kayaks are available to hire from CANI.

These trips will start and finish from the same location to avoid any shuttling or car sharing.

CANI do not provide toilet facilities at these paddles, however there are usually facilities nearby at shopping centres or other public venues.

Follow links below for information and booking details for each of the recreational paddles.

Boat Hire:
CANI members – £10.00

If you plan to take part in more than one recreation paddle why not take out recreational membership at a cost of £18 per year or family membership at a cost of £45 full membership and £5 for each additional family member per year. This would be much more economical, as recreational paddles are free to all members and the cost of boat hire is at a reduced price.
