Frequently Asked Questions

The centre is located in the heart of Perthshire, a short distance from Perth City Centre. You can find us on the banks of the River Tay, with signage to guide you in from major routes.

We will send you the precise address and postcode upon booking, but here is a summary to help you plan your visit:

  • By Foot: From Perth City Centre, you have two options:
    • Take the scenic riverside walk from Rodney Gardens, noting it can be muddy in winter or a wildflower path in summer. Be mindful of high tide times, as the path isn’t accessible one hour either side of high tide. This path’s conditions can vary.
    • For a firmer path, cross South Street bridge, turn right onto Dundee Road, and follow the pavement directly to the centre.
  • By Car: Use the postcode provided Sat Nav.
    • From Dundee, take A90, then A85, staying on Dundee Rd and look for brown tourist signs.
    • From Perth, go over South Street bridge, right on Dundee Rd/A85.
    • From Edinburgh, take M90, exit at Junction 11 for A85, and follow the signs.
  • By Bike: A cycle lane is available along Dundee Road, suitable for experienced cyclists. You can also follow the riverside walk, but may need to dismount in places. Secure bike storage is planned for the future
  • By Bus: Perth City Centre has bus stops about a 40-minute walk from our centre. A limited bus service stops at Walnut Grove, a 5-minute walk away, and an electric bus stop is directly outside our centre. Check Google Maps for the latest schedules and stops with the provided postcode.

We monitor the weather closely and will inform you in advance if conditions are unsafe for paddleboarding. We can reschedule your session for a later date if this is the case. However, a bit of rain and a grey sky won’t stop us. We will only reschedule if the conditions are unsafe.

Kids should come with swimwear, water-friendly shoes, a towel, and their lunch.

No, this course does not provide a specific qualification, but it does lay the foundation for further SUP education and qualifications.
