Group Hire

If you are looking for a fun filled adventure under your own steam then this is the activity for you. Our Mega SUPs fit between 5-8 people and are modelled on the single SUP that has grown in popularity around the UK. You can hire these just like you would a canoe or kayak on our 7½ mile route finishing by our Little Green Kiosk in the Wharfage car park (TF8 7NH).  There will be approximately 2½ to 3½ hours of paddling (dependent on ability and river levels) with time for you to enjoy a break as you float on the board along the way.  Meeting in Ironbridge at 10.15am, pre-booking in advance is essential.

These are great for corporate trips, friends and families or a good old stag or hen do.

We will provide buoyancy aids, paddles, helmets and a dry bag plus a shuttle up to the starting point. Please wear appropriate outdoor weather clothing (shorts, fitness gear or leggings) or bring your own wetsuit with sensible shoes for the river.  We also recommend you bring a change of clothing for the end of the trip (public toilets are available in the car park where we are based to change).

Enquire into our Mega SUP hire in Ironbridge as we also serve people on guided trips on the largest rafts in the UK around Ironbridge and the Shropshire area. For the best Mega SUP hire in Ironbridge, find our Little Green Kiosk located in the Wharfage car park next door to The Museum of the Gorge and Ironbridge Information Centre (TF8 7NH).

7½ Mile Route (2½-3½ hours)

Our mega-sup hire takes you on a scenic 7½ mile route on the River Severn.  We provide transport for you from our Little Green Kiosk in the Wharfage car park (TF8 7NH) to your starting point.  After dropping you off with all the necessary equipment, you can then enjoy paddling your way back to us in Ironbridge. Take in the gorgeous scenery along the way and enjoy the beautiful wildlife of the kingfishers, wagtails, swans and deer to experience an idyllic trip.  Remember to pack your food and soft drinks as you’ll also have time to enjoy a bite to eat as you float along on the board.

Please park in Dale End pay and display car park (TF8 7BS) and we are then a 2 minute walk to the Wharfage car park (TF8 7NH) where we meet at 10.15am at our Little Green Kiosk (ready for a 10.30am departure). If you are running late please call us.  As we may have other customers waiting to be transported, if you arrive late, we cannot guarantee that your trip will go ahead.

We then fit you with a buoyancy aid, paddle, helmet and dry bag and finish off the paperwork stating you have paddled before. After a short safety briefing, there is a 10-15 minute trip in our minibus to the start point where you are on the water for your day on the River Severn.

Health and Safety guidelines, rules and regulations

The safety and enjoyment of your trip are dependent on both river and weather on your chosen trip day. We will not allow any trips to proceed when severe conditions are occurring or expected. Heavy rainfall over the days leading up to your trip date affects the river levels especially rainfall over the Welsh mountains some two days before departure. Please do not hesitate to ask any questions relating to your Mega SUPs, other equipment and the River Severn. If you or any of your party have any health issues, this should be discussed first and us made aware of these conditions.

If you are late, unfortunately we may have to leave without you, meaning your trip may have to be cancelled or re-scheduled.
