Grab your paddle for an exploration of Bristol’s Harbour


Set out on a water sports adventure in Bristol’s beautiful, historic Harbour - the perfect setting for learning to paddleboard, canoe or sail.

Embark on a spring adventure and start your activity holiday with a plethora of water sports in Bristol’s vibrant and historic Harbour, right in the heart of the city. 

Make the most of Bristol’s stunning scenery and see a different side to the city as you float serenely in the shadow of the coloured houses of Clifton, meander alongside the famous Matthew, crane your neck at the cranes at M Shed and wave your paddle at passing hot air balloonists.

When you’re worn out, warm up with a traditional pub lunch and a pint of cider overlooking the water you’ve just navigated.
