Whoosh Explore Canoe Club run Canoe hire and paddling sessions on The River Stort and local rivers in Hertfordshire and Essex. We have a great fleet of canoes and touring kayaks which are great for learning to paddle with our 'Go Canoeing' activities and events. Join our Saturday morning paddle club to take part in a wide range of river tours and trails or join one of our trips on local rivers at a weekend. Get a group of friends together for a paddle where we will help you develop paddling skills and get qualifications in paddle sport. Our team of coaches work with you to ensure that you have a relaxing and enjoyable paddle on the river without having all the hassles associated with buying and touring with your own canoe or Kayak.
