kayak hire and tuition with Brighton Watersports

Hire a kayak in Brighton for totally unsinkable seaside fun. See Brighton beach from a different perspective whilst you paddle your kayak or simply rest and catch some rays on our colourful single and double kayaks. Our fully qualified staff will give instruction on how to use equipment prior to your launch into the sea, kit you up and supervise you at all times as you master the waves.

If you would like to venture a little further along the coast our guided tours are great for groups and allow you to take in more on the Sussex coastline. And if you are looking for expert tuition this can be provided for individuals or groups upon request to the highest level.
