Started in 2013, Mersea Island Watersports is an AALA & BSUPA accredited watersports centre based in an ideal harbour location that offers safe waters for learning and exciting opportunities for exploring.  All our instructors have been trained to a high level in each sport and most have grown up on Mersea Island so know the channels and creeks like the back of their hand. In addition, we conduct extensive pre-season training to ensure that all are meeting our high expectations.  

Choose from stand-up paddleboardingkayakingsailingwindsurfing or new for 2021 – Wing Foiling.

We offer lessons for all age groups and abilities as well as equipment and kit hire plus kid clubs, parties and corporate events!

With five different ways to float, the water can be accessible for all.
