Grab a Paddleboard and explore the harbour!

Taking a board out within our Hire area is the perfect opportunity to enjoy one of the world’s fastest growing Water Sports.

Just an hour is plenty of time to tire yourself out and of course get soaked, or explore the quiet coastline within our safe hire area, without having to worry about Ferries!

Hire Price includes:

  • One of our Fleet of SUPs
  • A Paddle
  • Buoyancy Aid
  • Basic Safety Briefing

If you’d like to hire our boards to take further afield, we can arrange to have them deflated for you ready for collection. (contact us to discuss Price)


  • Booked by the hour
  • £12 Per Board

Money from every activity you purchase goes directly to helping those less fortunate to try the same activities. You can see where your money makes a difference by checking out our charity page for our latest projects.

Harbour Challenge is easy to find - we are in the centre of Hamworthy Park in Poole. You can leave your car at Hamworthy Park Surface Car Park and take a short walk to the Centre. Please note that this is now a pay and display carpark between March to October.

Take the main path through the park, walk past the paddling pool and cafe to the cream-coloured building at the end of the park. This is the main Harbour Challenge Centre.
