Bawsey Bay is your Ideal Venue for Junior Activities


Bawsey Bay Watersports is located in Norfolk, within the natural grounds of Bawsey Estate and Country Park. Our base is on The Great Lake, a 60-acre lake. We are dedicated to offering professional watersports tuition, enabling young people to experience the excitement of various watersports activities. 

Bawsey Bay Watersports holds an AALA licence in stand up paddleboarding, kayaking and windsurfing and is also an accredited Paddle UK Delivery Partner  . In order to ensure the safety of students, we adhere to a strict 1:8 instructor to student ratio.

Our tuition is carried out by qualified instructors, all of whom hold National Governing Body (NGB) instructor qualifications including first aid, powerboating and safeguarding. On top of that all our staff undergo in-house training to ensure safe and competent delivery. All instructors are DBS checked.

Scouts, Guides and Community Youth Groups

Are you looking for a water sports session for your Scout, Guide or community group? Bawsey Bay Watersports is the perfect location.

We recommend either sit on top kayaking or stand up paddleboarding as these are the quickest sports for the children to pick up and the vast majority of the session will be spent on the water. For smaller groups we also offer windsurfing.

We offer youth watersports sessions that can be either single half-day or full-day multi-activity sessions. Available activities include stand-up paddleboarding, sit-on-top kayaking, and windsurfing.
