"We had a wonderful time on the river Arun. We hired kayaks for 2 hours. The guys were helpful and guided us through the instructions easily. The location (Pulborough) of this part of the river was tranquil, lots of wildlife to spot and easy to paddle along. Our friends visiting from overseas had an amazing time." - TripAdvisor

"Me and my boyfriend decided to hire a kayak on river Arun so we went to Pulborough for a day. We had so much fun on the water, it was very easy to navigate the river. The staff was super lovely and they even recommended some local pubs and nice walks for afterwards. Thank you for a great day!" - TripAdvisor

Unfortunately, due to the nature of the trips and the vessels used, Fluid Adventures are not currently wheelchair accessible. 

Fluid Adventures provides both open canoes which can accommodate solo paddlers as well as families. These groups consist of two adults and two small children.

There are also single and double kayaks on offer. If you're booking in a group, feel free to book more than one vessel to ensure every family member can participate. 

Whilst touring the South Coast with Fluid Adventures canoes and kayaks, you may experience some wetness. 

Fluid Adventures try to maintain stability within the kayaks and canoes, however there are occasional incidents where participants may tip over. 

Paddles also create splashback, particularly when kayaking in groups. 

Canoes offer a drier experience, but it is almost impossible to not get wet. 

Life on the water is often a lot cooler than life on land - in all senses of the word.

  • Fluid Adventures recommend dressing in multiple light layers to allow for easy adjustment to any temperature changes. 
  • Please refrain from wearing heavy or bulky clothing as this may hinder your canoe or kayak experience. 
  • Guests should bring additional clothes stored in a backpack as back-up.
