Watersports Courses

Here at Surfdock we have been teaching water sports for 25 years. Our watersports centre is ideally located in the Grand Canal Basin, only a short distance from the city centre and a 5 minute walk from the Grand Canal Dart Station. We provide all the equipment, wetsuits and buoyancy aids, so all you need to bring to your course is swimwear, an old pair of runners (or neoprene booties) and a towel. We have changing rooms and shower facilities on site and there is free parking for customers.
