Gosport & Fareham hire locations

Our Stokes Bay watersports hire base in Gosport is right on the beach in Stokes Bay, Gosport in Hampshire. This provides the best views of the Solent and offers a coastal watersports experience with plenty of sun, wind and waves. Picnics are welcomed on the shingle beach and there are designated BBQ areas adjacent to our base. Within Stokes Bay, there is a children’s play area and splash water park, tennis courts and a crazy golf centre. Gosport is also steeped in history so be sure to visit nearby museums including The Dive Museum, The Submarine Museum and Explosion Museum of Naval Firepower.

Just a short drive up the A32 is our Fareham Marina watersports hire base and our HQ. Fareham is a much more sheltered environment offering protection from strong south westerly winds and, whilst tidal, it offers a fantastic base to explore Portsmouth Harbour. Within Fareham Marina is our local gem Tides Cafe offering great coffee, exceptional cakes and a nice range of refreshments. Just a short walk away is the Castle in the Air pub or Fareham town is just a 10 minute walk.

When it isn't possible to operate at Stokes Bay due to adverse weather conditions, Fareham Marina offers a more sheltered option.
