Have you ever fancied messing about on the water? Ever felt that tingle of well-being and the sense of mindfulness being on or near water can bring?

At Somerset Boat Centre we can offer you a variety of ways to get on or be near the water and have some fun. We offer canoes, kayaks, self-drive motor boats and a chartered narrowboat. In addition the centre itself is a fantastic destination for that special event with its unique location and brand new facilities. Somerset Boat Centre is a recognised RYA training centre for water related courses, alongside this we also offer other work based training programmes.

We are a family business and have been on the water most our lives, the team here at ‘SBC’ are passionate about our inland waterways, in particular, the Bridgwater and Taunton Canal! Come along and meet the team, see the venue and boats and you’ll start to relax in minutes, as the old saying goes, time spent on the water is  “The fastest way of slowing down”
