Start the weekend right with our Saturday morning watersports session

Classes and camps all year

8 yrs to adult

Fees hourly or per course

Sibling discounts available

It’s like a mini version of the Surfdock summer camp, but instead of our week-long course, we run an action packed paddleboarding and kayaking session on Saturday mornings.

Book this session as a once off or for multiple sessions through out the Summer. Our qualified instructors will make sure that the kids are having a great time in a fun and safe environment while they are with us.

Whether your kids have lots of water sports experience or none, as long as they can swim and are comfortable in the water, this session is a great opportunity for them to learn new skills and spend time on the water with friends old and new. We will divide them into groups of similar ages when they arrive in the morning.

All equipment is provided including a 5/3 winter thickness wetsuit. If your child has their own full-length wetsuit, they are welcome to bring that.

Which activities are being offered?

This is a paddleboarding and kayaking session. We run the session on both single and double kayaks, individual paddleboards and our big Monster SUPs that can carry a group of kids for some fun racing and group activities.

What does a typical session look like?

Drop off is at 9.30am. After getting changed, the groups head out on the water for their activities. They come back to land just after 12pm. Collection is at 12.30pm.

What does it cost?

The price per child is €40 per session which includes all equipment and a wetsuit if needed.

What equipment do I need?

We provide all equipment for the activities including helmets and buoyancy aid and a wetsuit if needed.

Participants need to bring:

  • Participants need a full-length wetsuit. If a child doesn't have their own, a wetsuit can be provided free of charge. Our rental wetsuits are 5/3 winter wetsuit thickness and your child will keep it for the duration of the camp. Note: Shorties are not allowed.
  • Appropriate footwear. We recommend an old pair of runners, neoprene booties or water shoes. Note: Loose footwear like flip flops or Crocs are not allowed.
  • Swimwear for under the wetsuit.
  • Big Towel or changing robe to get changed outside. Please treat a trip to us like a trip to the beach.
  • Sunscreen, Rain Jacket, something warm to wear after the camp, snack & drink – we like to be prepared for any weather.
  • Rash Vest. (optional)

What are the dates?

Our Saturday Sessions will run most Saturdays over the summer, starting on the 13th May 2023.
