Get out on the water and explore beautiful Poole Harbour on our unique pedal kayaks and pedal boards.  Try your hand at kayak fishing with our fishing packages.  

Bike Rental

We have Ebikes for rental from Rockley Park. Our bikes are a bit different as they have a pillion seat on the back so that you can take younger passengers with you with ease.  We are also offering a choice of self-guided sat nav tour taking you on the best trailways and cycle paths around Poole.  The bikes come with pillion seats for older children and for younger kids you a child seat can also be added to our Ebikes making our rental a great way for the whole family to explore the local area without having to worry about carparks and traffic.  

Pedal Kayak Rental

We have a number of Hobie Pedal kayaks available at our centre inside Rockley Park.  Pedal kayaks are a great way to explore the harbour as they allow you to cover distance with very little effort.  Kids can join you on board thanks to our pillion kayak seats.  If you would like to try the sport of kayak fishing we also offer the chance to rent rods, lures and other accessories with your kayak rental.

Stand Up Pedalboard

A unique experience to Rockley Park – Stand up Pedalboards! 

Faster and more stable than a conventional Stand Up Pedalboard.  The Hobie Eclipse is great fun, especially with a friend.   Powered by a simple stepping motion you will be amazed at how easy it is.   Enjoy this combination of fun and fitness! "
