Owner description: The perfect place to enjoy the great outdoors! We are situated right on the shore of Christchurch Harbour with stunning views over Stanpit Marsh Nature Reserve. With immediate access to the shallow waters of Christchurch Harbour, it is an ideal place to learn or improve on a wide variety of watersports.
Reviewed 28 August 2013

We've done kayaking and sailing taster sessions at this centre and found both excellent. Will, our instructor for the sailing, was very patient and made sure we learnt the ropes(!). I personally found sailing not quite to my liking but my girlfriend enjoyed it and may join a sailing club as a result. I'm not sure of the ladys name who taught our kayaking session but she was also very patient and very good with beginners. We both found kayaking alot of fun and are going back soon for anther session.

All in all a great place to get out on the water, the harbour is lovely, a beautiful place to spend time. We might try windsufing next!
