What we're about

Have you ever wanted to try kayaking but didn't want to get cold and wet ?

We paddle in a heated swimming pool Friday evenings ! Croydon Active Paddlers have a fleet of kayaks for you to choose from and plenty of members to help get you settled.

We also paddle on Londons' rivers each month, which is a great way to see our city from a different perspective. And we paddle all year round. And are happy to lend out our kayaks and equipment so that people can join in without having to fork out for expensive equipment.

You can paddle with us three times before we ask you to become a member. We also encourage members to join us on expeditions to some of the whitewater rivers in the UK - but don't worry if that sounds scary, many of our members just like the gentle river paddles.

We have a number of qualified coaches and leaders that attend all pool sessions and trips. We are quite a social bunch too and often stop in the pub or restaurant for a bite to eat after sessions and trips.

If you're an experienced paddler join us on a short journey to Lee Valley or a longer weekend trip to where ever there's rocks and water!

Watch out for hippos and crocodiles as we meander thru this lovely forgotten Jungle backwater. After about two hours, we’ll pop out above Chertsey Weir where those that dare can spend some time looping & blunting on the Weir’s pour-over, whilst others look on!
