If you have never tried kayaking or canoeing before, but have always fancied trying, then why not book in for one of our fun taster sessions. All equipment and instruction is provided all you have to do is turn up and have fun!

Kayaking on the River Irwell

For those of you who have already tried their hands at kayaking on flat water we can offer an introduction to white water on the River Irwell, which meanders through the site with numerous rapids providing some more challenging fun.

At Burrs it is a one person kayak. We offer taster sessions these can be fun playing games etc. on our pond.

We can also tailor sessions to suit your group's ability, by calling the Centre we can discuss this with you.

All equipment is provided which includes Buoyancy aid, cagoule and a helmet. All you need to bring with you is a change of clothes, towel and trainers.

Should you wish to take kayaking further you can progress through the BCU sessions we currently run and get some qualifications, details of which are on our the website. These sessions are starting on the pond and progressing on to the onsite River Irwell.
