Take to the water

We are offering the opportunity for groups of young people to experience the Bridgewater Canal up close from the unique perspective of a canoe.
 
We're working with the experts at Helly Hansen Watersports Centre to provide canoeing trips along the Bridgewater Canal from Patricroft and Boothstown. Each session takes place on a Saturday from 9.30am to 2pm and can accommodate a maximum of 10 participants. Following an initial introduction to paddle skills participants will then take part in a canoeing trip of approximately 6km (3km each way).
 
If you are working with young people from Salford who would be interested in trying out canoeing on the Bridgewater Canal please get in touch. We are especially interested in community groups from the following areas – Barton, Boothstown, Eccles, Monton, Patricroft, Winton and Worsley. 
 
Update - we are now fully booked until early July 2017. We'll be releasing details in April of more dates for booking from July onwards.
 
For further information or to register your group’s interest please email bridgewatercanal@salford.gov.uk
