Wanda took six of us on the river on a very gusty Saturday afternoon and though it was too windy for her to be heard, she nevertheless managed to slip in interesting elements whenever she could. She told us about architecture and history that I never knew, despite being on the Thames regularly. She was also very encouraging about our paddling skills and has given me helpful tips. I would recommend this tour for anyone who enjoys paddling and is keen to learn more about the Thames's ecosystem.

My husband, 10-year old son, and I booked a group session in late August 2020. None of us had any experience with SUP beforehand. It was very easy to maintain 3m distance from everyone as the boards are 11' long, we entered the water one at a time, and we paddled single file. Our instructor, Rebecca, was outstanding! She is knowledgeable, aware, friendly, and confident. She gave us very valuable safety instruction at the beginning, which came in very handy as we encountered boats and a barge on the water way. We had a great time and learned how to go from kneeling to standing very quickly and easily. It was also great exercise and we did not feel sore in the coming days. Highly recommend!

We had an amazing morning with Active 360. It was a birthday party for 9 guests and the administration in arranging the event was helpful and efficient. Thank you Margaret! On the day itself we were welcomed by Lou and Richard, who were friendly, relaxed and full of enthusiasm, which put all the children at ease and keen to get going. They had such fun on the water, learning new skills, playing games and becoming more confident. Not only that Lou and Richard went above and beyond and took loads of photos and videos! It was a very reasonable priced activity, that was professionally run, extremely enjoyable and one which all 9 children are keen to have another go at. Massive thanks for a great adventure!

What a brilliant party! We booked a paddleboarding Birthday party with Active 360 on Brentford canal for our 10 year old and a few of his friends- and it was an absolute blast for all. We had a great shaded area for spectators to park up next to the pontoon and the 360 coach Lou and her assistant coach were both really lovely. They rocked up with bags of enthusiasm and smiles and really motivated the group to get going. It wasn't long at all before all the kids were standing up on their boards and really going for it. We even had one anxious child who was quite nervous about going out. Lou tandomed her board to his and took him out for a short cruise to get him used to the water. She helped him to gradually build his confidence and within minutes he was back out on his own kneeling and then fully standing. After mastering a basic technique, the party went off for some water games and a tour up the canal.. Although no-one needed to fall in, the urge for a group of playful boys in 27 degree sunshine was too great and most of them had a refreshing dip! (the water was cleaner than we expected and there were showers available with 360 should they have been needed). I would definitely recommend Active 360 to help get your kids out on the water. We actually took our first ever boards out on the water while the party was going on as we had planned to get some practice in and do future trips with the kids sat on the front. Looks like the kids are going to need to get their own boards too now!!!

Great experience and fun day out along the river. Wanda who led the group was brilliant, taught us how to use the paddle board and gave tips throughout as well as being very knowledgeable about the river and wildlife in and around it. Would highly recommend.

I had such a great experience with Active360. They were so accommodating. I own a paddle company in the US and wanted to experience paddling in the UK and they helped me book 2 memorable tours. One tour with the amazing Isabel who showed me a wonderful time on the Grand Canal in Central London. This was a neat way to experience the city and see it from a totally different view. Located right outside Paddington Station it is easy access to paddle if staying right in the city. The paddle at Kew Bridge with Dan was a wonderful paddle to get to experience life outside the bustle of the city. I got to see many sites and amazing bridges as we navigated the tidal river with ease due to my coach. We stopped for coffee at a traditional English pub and headed back to the Kew bridge. If you have the time make this a full day experience as I did and visit Kew Gardens located a short walking distance from the bridge.Although this is located about a 45 min drive from London I found it easier to navigate the train leaving from Kew Garden it is a short walk and fairly easy to navigate even from someone not familiar with the trains as was the situation for me. This is a highly professional and friendly SUP outfitter and I can’t wait to visit again and see what else I can explore!

A lovely balmy evening at the turn of the tide. Flat waters and sunlit sceneries. Surrounded by wildlife and sunken boats. What a first time experience Paddleboarding. Dana and Paul couldn’t have been nicer and the journey back from Richmond to Kew Bridge was an easy glide with the the turned tide. Only disappointment was to miss the seal sighting reported to us from another boarder. Must have inconspicuously swam past us under the surface! In London?! Magical!

I had my first paddleboarding lesson here yesterday (17th July). What a fantastic time! I am an unfit, middle aged man but with gentle coaching and encouragement the instructors had me on my feet and stable.

It's safe to say I loved it! I'm now looking forward to my next session. The instructors were personable, fun and really good at their job. Nothing was too much trouble for them. To the extent that when I expressed disappointment at leaving my wallet at the base when we did a pub stop at the half way point, one of them ran off, bought my party a round of drinks and we settled up back at base.

Thank you Harry and Stuart. You were great! You'll see me again!!

A brilliant day exploring the Grand Union Canal and waterways in Brentford. As part of socially responsible team building event, we used paddleboards to explore and clear litter from the canal. Well organised, excellent and safe instruction and catered to all levels and abilities.

Had a fantastic time on the natural history tour from Kew Bridge. Lou was a great coach - made everyone feel welcome and, as we were all beginners, built our confidence on the paddle boards really quickly. Would highly recommend, and thank you Lou for a great tour of the Thames!
