Gloucester City Evening Kayaking
Join Discover Paddling for a kayaking experience and see Gloucester Dock in the golden hour of the day.
Learn the basics of kayaking with step by step instruction from one of our highly qualified and friendly instructors
Join us for an evening paddleboarding as we enjoy the 'golden hour' as the sunset over the historic buildings surrounding Gloucester Dock. A fun and unique way to see Gloucesters historic waterway. Kayaking is relaxing and a great way to get friends and family together.
