Paddleboard Regent's Park & London Zoo

London, United Kingdom

Experience hosted by Jennifer

90 mins
Includes drinks, equipment
Up to 8 people
Hosted in English

What you'll do

Our tour starts at The Pirate's Castle - a real castle incongruously located just metres from busy, bustling Camden market. Once getting everyone on board we'll head west, along the historic Regent's Canal, past the Feng Shang Princess floating restaurant and through the zoo, if we're lucky getting sight of some of the local residents. We'll double back at the far end of the zoo and head back to base for sharing photos and regaining our land legs.

Don't see a day/time when you'd like to paddleboard? Drop us a message and we can often plan additional times.

AGE REQUIREMENTS: Please note our minimum age is 17 years without a parent. We can allow ages 14-16 to join on their own board but a parent/responsible adult must also be booked into the session. We're not able to take under 14s. Please also drop us a message to let us know if children 14-16 will be on the session so we can plan accordingly.

Our trips are fun, friendly and relaxed - suitable for all levels. Don't worry if you're a newbie, we keep the groups to manageable size. If you're looking for something a bit more adventurous do also have a look at our paddleboarding and paddleboard yoga experience :)

We look forward to welcoming you on board.
Other things to note
This is a leisurely paced paddle open to beginners/experienced paddlers. You're not likely to fall in but we have full shower facilities available. Valuables are locked up while we're on the water.

Jen and Anu have a passion for paddleboarding in urban environments and London is one of the best there is! With over 10 years of teaching between us we've introduced hundreds of people to SUP for the first time. Our love for London shines through on the tours, sharing fun facts and historical tidbits while we paddle through the prettiest parts of The Regent’s Canal. If you're lucky you'll also get to paddle alongside Camden’s famous SUP pup Clyde.

Where you'll be

Camden Town is full of buzz & colour. The market, restaurants & bars are a great way to see a real slice of London life. Our nearby little canal side castle might seem a little incongruous but it serves as a charity, established to teach local children kayaking skills. Our tours help support the charity too - each time someone books a board we donate a portion to the charity! Join us for a zen trip through the zoo - what could be better?

Amazing!! My son, 16 and I had never paddleboarded before. We were SO nervous about falling in. Nobody fell in and we had a truly magical 90 minutes on the lovely Regent's Canal. A life memory for us. Jennifer was calm and a brilliant leader, looking after us all the way. Do it!

Loved this experience! From start to finish Jennifer and anu were really friendly, welcoming, and most importantly patient with the group. They were great teachers and helped/ encouraged each person 1 on 1, and we had no falls! Had a great time on the water, thanks both!

Jennifer was wonderful! It was both of our first-time paddle boarding and she was very patient with us. She also was very helpful and walked us through every step when it came to paddle boarding, all while making us feel comfortable and get rid of that nervousness. And with all that, we both finished the experience dry and didn't take any unnecessary dips in the river. Hahaha

We loved our time with Jen. We were new to paddle boarding and she explained what to do clearly and made us very relaxed on the water. A really quiet and lovely stretch of canal.

We had a great time paddleboarding with Jen. Jen was friendly and reassuring throughout. The location is also perfect for exploring Camden Town. Highly recommended way to enjoy London outdoors and suitable for all abilities as well!

Paddleboarding with Jen was amazing! I’d lived in Camden for months and had no idea this treasure trove was right under my nose; I was so glad to have someone introduce me to it. Being on the water gives a whole new perspective to Regent’s Park, not to mention how much fun paddleboarding is! I had no idea there could be such a peaceful spot right in the middle of the city. Everyone on my trip was a beginner and Jen made sure everyone felt comfortable and confident in what they were doing. It’s not strenuous exercise, so don’t be scared off by that; it’s a relaxed way to feel a little active. She taught us to paddleboard while teaching us lots about the history of the canal and it’s surroundings. She also seemed genuinely interested in getting to know us and coaxing out interesting conversations between us. There was a perfect balance between friendly interaction and the freedom to go off a little bit for a moment of quiet introspection or exploration. Also of note: this was in July 2020 and I can confirm that they are up and running post-lockdown, with fantastic safety measures in place! They’re cleaning everything and the nature of paddleboarding is that you’ve got your space at all times. This was the perfect way to safely get some air after months of lockdown, while also discovering a new part of the city. I highly, highly recommend this for visitors and residents alike!
