Action-packed activities for your hen, stag and corporate groups
If you are looking for something different to do for your hen or stag party or corporate event, we’ve got you covered. Whether you would like a splash and dash session or something more structured, our qualified instructors will make sure that your group have a memorable time on the water that’s all about fun!
All our parties are private events, so our instructors will be dedicated to your group.
We are close to a host of restaurants where you can enjoy food after your session with us.
Which activities are being offered?
This is a paddleboarding and kayaking session. We run the session on both single and double kayaks, individual paddleboards and our big Monster SUPs that can carry a group of people for some fun racing and group activities.
What does a typical day look like?
Arrival on site at the agreed time to meet your instructors and get checked-in. After getting changed, your group heads out on the water for their activities. You will come back to land after 2 hours. Once changed you are welcome to use our picnic area for your own food/drinks.
Plan around 3 hours from start to finish.
Example: if your arrival time is 12.30pm you will go on the water at approximately 1pm, off the water at 3pm and be ready to leave around 3.30pm
What does it cost?
Minimum group size is 10 people or the price for 10 people to be paid if your group is smaller.
- 10-24 participants: €45 per person
- 24-32 participants: €42 per person

Yes, all participants have to sign a waiver before they can go on a session with us. We offer a digital waiver that can be shared with parents by Whatsapp/Email or we can send you a pdf of the waiver to print out for the parents. Children without a waiver cannot participate in the activities. The text of the waiver can be found here.
This year we will have separate outdoor changing areas for men and women. They don’t offer 100% visual cover so we are asking you to treat a trip to us like a trip to the beach and be prepared with a big towel or changing robe.
Our toilets are open as usual.
We have lockers for valuables available free of charge.
Our adult group packages are 2 hours on the water. You need to plan 30 minutes before and after for check in and to get changed.

The Grand Canal Dock is a sheltered and enclosed space, which means our sessions can go ahead in most conditions unless it is not safe to do so for example if there are very strong winds. Rain does not stop us from running a session. In the rare case that we need to cancel or postpone a session, we will offer you a full refund or to reschedule the session.
