Summer July-August: Group bookings are limited due to the Club daycamps and sprint canoe/kayak training. Please contact us and we will check if we can offer a group booking (weekdays Mon-Fri). Sorry we do not offer evening or weekend lessons due to the large amount of competitive training going on at the Reservoir for rowing, dragon boat, outrigger and sprint canoe/kayak.
We also offer team building sessions in dragon boats, perfect for events like school graduations or just general competitive fun with your students.
Equipment fleet includes: 25 kayaks, 20 tandem canoes, and 3 dragon boats (which hold 20 paddlers each).
Instructor participant ratio: 1: 8 for kayaking, 1: 10 for canoeing, and 2:20 for dragon boating.
CORPORATE TEAM BUILDING SESSION
Do you have a corporate group that wants to experience some fun team building or just wants a day out of the office to explore the Reservoir ?
We offer sessions for dragon boating team building geared towards your goals.
What you will learn: Participants work together on paddling as a cohesive team through technique drills and fun races in a dragon boat.
We also offer canoeing if preferred. For canoeing we offer an instructor led lesson then you are free to explore the reservoir on your own in our tandem canoes.
Availability and cost depends on the length of session and group size. Dragon boats accommodate up to 20 paddlers per boat. The minimum group size for dragon boat is 15, maximum is 60. Having at least 2 dragon boats makes it a little more fun for racing.
Time: Monday- Friday 9 am – 4pm, May to mid-October. Fridays are our preferred day for corporate sessions.
Hall rental: We also have a hall that you may rent to use for meeting before and after your session. If you prefer to book a lesson and hall contact us for hall availability to match up with lesson.
