West Solent Experience
We have been asked many times about paddle boarding to the Isle of Wight
and the Needles Lighthouse and if it is possible.
Now we are able to say yes!
In association with Hurst Marine we are now excited to be able to offer The West Solent Experience!
This is a truly unique experience you won't find anywhere else.
A chance to paddle along the iconic West Solent coastline to the Needles Rocks and Light House all with the safety of an experienced instructor and powerboat support.
Your experience starts at Keyhaven Quay where you will meet your instructor and will board the boat for the short journey across to the island.
Once at Colwell Bay you will disembark and start your stunning paddle along the coastline towards the Needles taking in the different bays and sights along the way.
The experience will give you a chance to paddle round the stacks of the needles before landing at Scratchels bay for a coffee and pastries supplied by Hurst on the Hill
before the powerboat return journey.
Due to the nature of this paddle we require you to be a competent paddler with at least a BSUPA Ready to Ride Certificate or equivalent from another teaching organisation
or sea paddling experience.
Our dates and times for 2020 are now available to book by contacting us direct.
£225 per person.
£50 Deposit required upon booking unless booked with gift voucher
More dates or private sessions maybe available please contact us.
We require a minimum of 4 paddlers for the experience to run with a maximum of 6
