Hire a coastal rowing boat

Enjoy rowing – without commitment.

Hire a coastal rowing boat and enjoy rowing – without commitment. At the Coastal Rowing Centre we have coastal rowing boats for hire. If you want to try coastal rowing for the first time, row occasionally or on a regular basis; we have a range of options for you to consider – see below.

For all sessions booking is essential to ensure we put you in a boat that suits your experience. It is also an opportunity for us to advise on suitable clothing and footwear, make you aware of potential sea and weather conditions and provide information on safety.

To book call 01305 257 774

Or email bob@coastalrowing.co.uk

All sessions are ‘accompanied’ for your safety. We will provide you with a buoyancy aid.

Though we would like to cater for people of all ages, at present due to safety considerations we are unable to cater for those under 14 years old. If you are under 18 years of age you must be accompanied by an adult.

Due to changing weather and sea conditions it may be necessary to change dates and times at short notice.

For more information email us at bob@coastalrowing.co.uk or call 01305 257 774 – please leave a message if we are unable to answer, we may be on the water; we will get back to you.
