In a prime location on the shores of the Solent, Calshot Activities Centre boasts more than just beautiful shoreline. As one of the largest outdoor adventure centres in Britain, Calshot is also host to a wide range of exciting water and land-based activities for families and thrill-seekers alike!


Action Adventure Experiences are a great way to try out a new activity. From 30 to 60 minutes each, why not combine two or more and truly make the most of your visit. Activities include Take Off, Aero Trek, Laser Climb and Ringos.

Kayaking at Calshot

Paddle and explore the spectacular Calshot coastline with our fun and invigorating kayak hire.


Choose from either single or double sit-on-top kayaks to hire and discover the Calshot ‘lagoon’ – a safe tidal inlet and nearby salt marshes. Soak up the rays, connect with nature and create memories with your friends or family from the comfort of your kayak.

Windsurfing at Calshot

Windsurfing is one of the most exciting watersports we offer. Thanks to its unique location, Calshot is the ideal venue for both novice and more experienced windsurfers.

We are a RYA Training Centre and offer courses at all levels from novice to instructor. We have an excellent range of modern boards and rigs which are available for immediate use as part of your course.
