Destinations

Starting on a broad calm stretch of the river you’ll paddle upstream toward Folly bridge passing some of the local rowing clubhouses before turning off onto the river Cherwell and passing Christchurch meadow & Cathedral, before arriving at the Botanic Gardens next to Magdalen College and Magdalen bridge - formally a notorious spot for people jumping into the river on May Day morning!
After a short break we’ll retrace our route to the beginning

Fantastic experience, would highly recommend. Paul is professional, friendly and easy to talk to. Good safety talk and training at the beginning and eases you in to it with starting out sitting/kneeling on the boards before standing. Lovely route up the river, beautiful views and wildlife/nature along the route. He even leant me a fleece for extra warmth and has dry bags available to bring your bag with you if you wish. Would definitely recommend booking. Thanks for a great trip👍

We booked an evening paddleboarding session with Paul, having paddle boarded once before (a while ago!) Paul was a great instructor and took the time to make sure we were both comfortable with the basics. He had lots of hints and tips for new paddle boarders that made it feel much less scary than I remember. He also took lots of photos which he shared with us afterwards. A gorgeous evening taking in the sights of Oxford with a great guide. Highly recommended. Thanks Paul!

Fantastic experience from start to finish. Paul was fabulous with us and our children giving us all a day to remember. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend.

I had paddle boarded once before, a few years back, with a different company and had persuaded my friends (all complete beginners and somewhat apprehensive) to try this during our trip, so the pressure was on! I need not have worried because as soon as we met Paul, I knew all would be well. Paul is a great coach and was knowledgeable and patient with us - AND has a great sense of humour, thank goodness! We felt confident enough to stand up, reasonably early on, thanks to his guidance and encouragement and thoroughly enjoyed our time on the water with him, in a beautiful setting and also for the wonderful photos he took for us, as a memento of the day. We cannot recommend this experience with Paul highly enough, especially for water confident beginners and will have no hesitation in booking up again on our next trip to Oxford. Thanks so much, Paul, you’re a Superstar!

I was a bit nervous but Paul is a great instructor and we all knew we were in safe hands, getting the basics quickly with clear instructions meant we were all standing up and enjoying it within half an hour. The scenery is lovely and I got to see Oxford from an angle I hadn’t before. One of our group had paddle boarded before and still got a lot out of this with us beginners, I would thoroughly recommend anyone give this a go, I’m not really that ‘outdoorsy’ and I loved it, the boys did too.
