Attraction Information

Whether you have webbed feet or prefer to keep yours dry, Portsmouth Watersports Centre has a whole load of activities to keep you busy.

Let’s start on the waterfront. You and your kids (from 7 years and up) can have a crack at sailing, kayaking, power boating, windsurfing and even stand up paddle boarding. The team are all highly qualified and ready to help so you can be confident in letting your water babies start early. They even run taster sessions throughout the year so you can dip your toe in the proverbial (and indeed literal) water!

Back on dry land the team offer a high ropes course, archery and climbing. They also put kids at the heart of what they do with several day/ week courses run in conjunction with school holidays, as well as birthday parties and youth clubs. That includes the Swashbucklers club, Extreme Adventures and Bushcraft. All are designed to keep youngsters busy, engaged and away from their screens.
