Moo Canoes was created in 2012 to make London’s waterways more fun for everyone!

They work with Thames 21 and The Canal and River Trust, using the fleet to enhance and protect the waterways. They’ve also helped found two community action groups, The Lower Regent’s Coalition and Friends of the Cut – there are regular friendly events and both welcome new volunteers!

Moo Canoes – Paddleboarding (SUP)

(Back in Spring 2020)

Is it a fish?  Is it a new species of waterfowl? Is it the offspring of a surfboard and a canoe? No, it’s stand-up paddleboarding (SUP), the latest craze to hit the Limehouse Cut, brought to you by Poplar Union and Moo Canoes!

This decidedly different sport is a fantastically fun way to get out and enjoy the water. Great for balance and core strength, our paddle boarding sessions are suitable for beginners and seasoned SUPers alike. Their experienced instructors will kit you up and take you through the basics with the aim of getting you on the water and experiencing the joys of the sport as soon as possible.
