Haven Banks Dragon Boats and Motorboat

July 3, 2021, 10.00am — July 3, 2021, 12.00pm

Now fully booked

Join us for another fabulous water-based family morning out at Haven Banks in Exeter, Haven Road, EX2 8DP on Saturday 3rd July 10am- 12pm. 

This will be an activity that the whole family can join in.
Haven Banks Public Car Park is situated on Michael Browning Way (approx 200 metres from the centre), off Haven Road, Exeter, EX2 8DP.
Afterwards we are hoping the sun will be shining so that we can go and have a picnic at Cowick Barton Recreation ground, Barton Road, EX2 9DD – please bring your own lunch and drinks as well as blankets or chairs to sit on. We will provide cakes and biscuits!
Haven Banks is based on Exeter’s canal and is a purpose-built outdoor activity centre. We have booked two large dragon boats and a motorboat for two hours of fun on the water!
Dragon Boating is a great activity where you work as a large team, where timing, cohesion and group co-operation are key to success. Teams sit in the boat on either side and propel the 48 feet/15 metre boat using a single bladed paddle. However if your child can’t paddle that’s fine but they do need to be able to sit unaided. Please note this is not suitable for children aged under five but they are welcome to join us for the picnic afterwards and Exeter has several lovely playparks you can visit.

We have also booked the motorboat which is an all-inclusive motorboat designed with bench seats and clear areas to accommodate wheelchair users. This can accommodate four wheelchair users and their carers/ enablers.
