Equipment details

Findhorn Watersports have a small range of equipment that can be hired on a range of timings, from 1 hour to a full day.

Hire of this equipment is dependant on the weather conditions, and you can only take these boats and boards out in Findhorn Bay. We may also need to cancel hire at short notice, for example, if the wind builds very suddenly. This is not a step we take lightly, but your safety is paramount.

Everyone who hires one of our craft must also wear a buoyancy aid supplied by Findhorn Watersports. The cost of the buoyancy aid is included in the hire cost.

Wetsuit hire

We have a number of wetsuits available for hire in a range of sizes. The cost of hiring a wetsuit ranges from £5 for an hour for a child under 16, to £20 for a day for an adult. Please use the booking link to reserve your wetsuit.

The following watersports equipment can be hired:


Stand Up Paddle Boards

Sit on top Kayaks


Topper Topaz single handed dinghies – but only if you can demonstrate you have sufficient experience to take a boat of this nature on the water. Please note that these boats may be being used on courses throughout the summer, so may not be available. We will keep our website updated on their availability.

Wayfarer dinghies – as with the Topper Topazes above – you must be able to demonstrate your ability and experience to take a boat like this out on the water.

We would normally look for the following evidence:

RYA National Sailing Scheme Level 2 (Adult) minimum

RYA Youth Sailing Scheme Stage 3 (Junior and Youth) minimum

We appreciate some people will have RYA Yachting qualifications, but we would need to see evidence of your dinghy sailing experience before we would let you hire a sailing dinghy.

Please email if you are unable to supply the above evidence required for hiring a sailing dinghy but you have alternative options.

To hire any of the above equipment, see below.
