Raft Building

Prices from £20 pp

Race against your rivals to see who can build a raft - and whether it sinks or swims

NB please be aware during off Summer Seasons bookings are only accepted on Fridays and Sundays as the centre shuts on Saturdays

Sick of the same old Stag weekend activities and looking for something truly different for you and your stags to do in Manchester over the weekend. It includes barrels, planks, ropes, water and the possibility of getting completely and utterly soaked – that's right ever fancied pulling a Ray Mears and trying to build a raft to float on water as your stag weekend activity?

The Salford Watersports centre is situated just a few minutes walk from Salford Quays tram stop meaning no expensive transport is required to undertake a spot of stag raft building. The only question is how long will your sailors knots last?

When you arrive the experienced instructors will discuss what you want out of the session and then after your safety briefing will supervise the madness. These raft building sessions run in groups of 8 stags with one instructor so for larger groups you will be split up into different groups of stags. Each session lasts one and a half hours with fifteen minutes preparation, one hour on the water and fifteen minutes to get out of the water and pack up. Our price is a per stag cost based on a one and a half hour session, simply multiply it by the number of sessions you want to get to the final per stag price.

Once you have finished  there is a pub next to the watersports centre where you can get some much needed food or liquid refreshment – just make sure any drinking is done after your session and not before otherwise your raft will definitely not float!
