The Paddle Centre Opens at Swanwick Marina

For the first week since our opening we will also be offering a reduced rate of £10 per hour (previously £15) on all SUP and Kayak hire sessions. This offer ends on Monday, the 22nd of June.


The Paddle Centre at Swanwick Marina opened on Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th June 2020. This is a new Paddle Centre at Premier’s Swanwick Marina – and is open in line with social distancing rules.


The Paddle Centre, located next to the slipway at Swanwick, will provide local families and residents with the opportunity to hire Stand Up Paddleboards and kayaks with which to enjoy the stunning Hamble River throughout the summer season and beyond.


Aside from offering SUP and kayak hire on a ‘pay and play’ basis, the centre will offer a raft of classes including Sunrise and Sunset SUP experiences, paddleboard safaris and SUP yoga. Plus, for those new to paddling, the centre has an experienced team on hand to help customers get on the water for the first time with 1.5 hour SUP taster lessons, where attendees can learn basic SUP paddle skills, as well as all-important water safety before venturing out onto the water. 


“We’re delighted to be opening this weekend and we’re looking forward to helping more people access the water this summer, and throughout the year,” says Kyle Grady, Centre Manager of The Paddle Centre. “The River Hamble really is the most perfect location to enjoy paddling whether you are new to the water or not.” 


With hygiene and social distancing protocols in place, ample dedicated onsite parking, the new Paddle Centre also has toilets and changing facilities, as well as provision to safely serve hot drinks and snacks to customers while maintaining COVID-19 restrictions.


For the first week since our opening, we will also be offering a reduced rate of £10 per hour (previously £15) on all SUP and Kayak hire sessions. This offer ends on Monday, the 22nd of June.


The Paddle Centre is the best Paddlesports venue on the River Hamble. Its experienced team of passionate paddlers are here to help customers access the water, with easy to use hire, beginner taster sessions, safaris and lessons available. It will also offer

session passes and memberships for those who want to get out on the water more often and at exclusive times.


The centre welcomes and accepts walk in's for hire, however they would always recommend booking to ensure equipment availability. Pre-booking is almost essential during peak times such as weekends and during sunny periods.


The centre can only hire to those who are 12 years old and over. Anyone hiring under the age of 18 years old must be accompanied on the water by a parent or guardian who is at least 21 years old and who is also hiring either a Stand Up Paddleboard or Kayak from The Paddle Centre within the same time frame.
