5km Timed Route To The Liver Building and back


AquaPaddle Liverpool is based in the world-famous Liverpool Docks. Any Craft can be used for AquaPaddles at this venue (weather dependent), including different Kayaks, Canoes, SUPs, etc. The course will take you through the dock system through all of the history that they used to be used for, and the interesting new multi-billion pound developments being constructed in this fast-evolving waterway. The course brings you right the way up to the famous Liver Building in Princess Dock before heading back to the finish point.

Please note SUPs are required to wear a helmet that conforms to CE EN 1385 standards. A limited amount can be hired for a small fee from the club (Please contact the club in advance). This is due to the Dock Walls throughout the route.

Friends Of Allonby Canoe Club Liverpool is the home venue and supports the running of the AquaPaddles events at this location through their diverse group of dedicated volunteers.

If you are interested in volunteering to join the crew please contact us through the Discord Comms System, contact the host club or email AquaPaddle.

There is so much to see in the docks and with its sheltered location, it is fairly weather resistant. City Centre paddling hardly gets better than AquaPaddle Liverpool.
