Kelvin and the team at TK Watersports Dorset can’t wait to meet you.
Welcome to TK Watersports in Dorset, operated by authorised franchisee‘s Jurassic Watersports. Kayaking is the best way to get up close and personal with the truly awesome coastline we have here in Dorset. On our taster sessions, one of our experienced Instructors will give you some key basic instruction and take you out to explore the world-famous Poole Harbour. The harbour is the second biggest natural harbour in the world, featuring 5 islands, an SSSI and the home of the international Scout movement.
The unique manoeuvrability of a Kayak makes them the perfect mode of transport for exploring the Old Harry coastline. We can take you to places you’ve never even seen, explore caves, arches and hard to reach beaches. Adventures like these also come along with some truly exclusive photo opportunities, the type of photos that are the perfect addition to your Socials, with the added benefit of making all your followers jealous!
Kayaking is one of the largest watersports in the world. Hugely popular largely because of how easy it is to jump in a kayak and explore. Kayaks offer manoeuvrability that you just can’t get on any boat, giving you the ability to get into small bays and explore small rivers.
Kayaking offers an amazing sense of freedom. However, it does also present its own risks. By joining us on one of our kayak taster sessions you can enjoy the freedoms of the sport, under the safe, watch full eye of one of our experienced instructors.
At TK Watersports™ you’ll find a highly reputable Dorset based kayak hire, kayaking trips, canoe adventure trips, excursion and coasteering franchisee with years of experience providing safe, insured, top quality sit on kayaks for hire. We pride ourselves on keeping all our kayaks and canoes well maintained in first class condition, and updated. In fact, we’ve invested heavily in new equipment over the last three years!
We provide comprehensive safety briefings from our in-house team of highly experienced and fully trained instructors and guides.
So you can rest assured that your hired kayak or canoe from TK Watersports™ is a safe vessel from which to explore the water.
From our headquarters in Poole Harbour, we operate from the first Saturday in April to the last Sunday in October each year, SEVEN DAYS A WEEK. Please note we do not operate from 1st November to 31st March each year. To book your kayak hire, kayaking trips, taster sessions, canoe adventure trips, or coasteering session, give us a call on 01202 985196 today!
Our Hire fleet consists of both single and double Feel Free Kayaks which are perfect for family and friends to get out on the water. TK Watersports now offers kayak hire in specified locations across our area. Pick a boat from our fleet of Kayaks, pick a location from our pre-set list of awesome Kayak spots, pick a drop off time and we will meet you there will all the equipment you need to enjoy your day on the water.
We drop off the boat and you go. We do not give any instruction, so at a minimum you need to know how to paddle. Our two coastal locations, (Knoll Beach and Lake Pier), are really only suitable for more experienced paddlers. At Knoll Beach especially you need to have some experience in kayaks and know what’s what. We may contact you in advance to discus your experience prior to your hire session, especially if the conditions appear to be more challenging.
At TK Watersports, we don‘t cut corners on your safety. Ww also have a selection of the finesst top of the range buoyancy aids, dry tops, cags and paddles in both left handed and right handed varieties, all from the leading manufacturers.
New for 2021 we have re imagined some old classicactivities and put a special twist on them! We were also keen to run morecanoeing sessions, so we thought what better way to do that then by launching our new Canoeing Adventure Trips.
These trips make for the perfect family Adventure day! Prices are based per Canoe, each Canoe is big enough for two parents and one or two little ones. Depending on how big your little ones are, one or two canoes is more then enough for your family. We also offer the option to book out our fleet of six Canoes to yourselves so you can bring along the extended family for a family only adventure!
Meet your Instructor at lake pier for 10:00am, load up yourboats and launch away into the harbour. You’ll paddle along towards Rockley Park,then across to the RSPB reserve and SSSI at Arne. You’ll continue along thesandy beaches of Arne and round into Arne bay. Your Instructor will guid youround some of the small bays, stopping on a beach for a picnic lunch. After lunchyou’ll do some more exploring before heading back to the beach at Lake Pier. Bringing an end to your day of adventure.

MESSAGE FROM OUR CEO
During this recent crisis with COVID19, TK Watersports like many other businesses, have evolved, partly thanks to grant funding received. We can now offer many more activities in more locations through our trusted network of franchised providers and operators. This is in addition to our core services offered by ourselves in the Devon & Cornwall area.
I’d like to thank those franchisees for coming onboard the TK Watersports platform and look forward to a rewarding year ahead.
