Cremorne Riverside - Adult Paddlers

Regular adult sessions

Adult kayaking sessions take place on Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays at Cremorne Riverside. Sessions are aimed at improving fitness, stamina, boat control and paddling safely on the tidal Thames.

To join the sessions you will first need to attend a 1:1 induction, which will take about 2 hours, so that we can familiarise you with the equipment, our boats and the tide. Please contact the centre to arrange a time which suits you.

  • Induction paddle: £40 (Includes one free regular adult session)
  •  Cost per session: £15
  •  Or save with a block of 5 sessions: £60

For further details contact the Cremorne Riverside Activity Centre.

Adult beginner courses

Courses are held from March until October, and are aimed at introducing you to the sport of kayaking on the tidal Thames. The course content includes an introduction to the kayak, boat control, rescue skills and paddling in tidal conditions safely.

  •  Adult beginner four week course: £100

Chelsea Kayak Club

Formed in March 2010, Chelsea Kayak Club is a friendly London club which has been set up to specifically focus on sea kayaking and touring.

The Club meets during the week and occasional weekends for paddling on the Thames from Cremorne Riverside Activity Centre in Chelsea, although it operates completely independently of the Centre.

Membership is open to anyone over the age of 18 who is able to swim 50m in light clothing – please also refer to the club's FAQs webpage for information on how to get started if you have limited paddling experience or to answer any other questions you may have.
