Come and join us in the world’s greatest playground - the ocean. We’re passionate about the sea and want to help you get out on the water and enjoy it.

We offer a range of watersports, including stand up paddleboarding (SUP) and kayaking, all in the safety of Portland Harbour, a beautiful stretch of water that’s accessible in most conditions. Our fully qualified and experienced instructors are here to help you try something new, and we offer equipment hire if you want to do your own thing.

Our CrossFit box will help you become fitter, faster and stronger, whether that’s to help you improve at your chosen watersport, or for another personal fitness goal. The classes we run are designed to push you to your limit in a way that’s safe for your body.

We love to meet other people with a passion for the sea, so come down and have a chat. We can recommend the best ways to explore the Jurassic Coast, organise kayak or SUP tours, arrange watersports lessons and help you make the most of this beautiful corner of Dorset.

Stand Up Paddleboarding

Our Events

Stand Up Paddleboarding (SUP) has become incredibly popular in recent years - and we love it. We’ve been offering SUP lessons and tours for many years, making us one of the most experienced SUP centres on the Jurassic Coast.

SUP instruction

We have a great team of ASI-qualified instructors, who are here to help you get out on the water for the first time, or hone your existing SUP skills. We want you to love SUP just as much as we do, so our sessions are designed to help you progress, not just to get the basics (although we’ll make sure you’ve got those too!).

As you progress, we can help you explore other aspects of the sport, including SUP racing, SUP surfing and SUP downwinding - we’ll even introduce you to SUP polo. We’re in one of the UK’s top spots for downwind paddling, so there’s nowhere better to experience the thrill of a downwinder for the first time.

We offer private and group lessons, running regular sessions throughout the week and on weekends. We also run children’s sessions. Check our class timetable to see what’s coming up and the prices for each session.

SUP tours

If you want to discover the Jurassic Coast on a board, our SUP safaris up the Fleet lagoon and around Portland Harbour are perfect. The Fleet is a particularly great place for a paddle, as it’s calm, sheltered and home to a variety of wildlife, including hares, terns and otters, that you can observe from your board.

Around the harbour there are some fascinating sights, including Sandsfoot Castle and a former submarine testing centre.

If you just want to go for a chilled out paddle, you can hire all the equipment you need and explore at your own pace. Take a look at our tour and hire prices.

SUP fitness

Simply being out on a SUP is a great full-body workout, but with a bit of effort you can get some real health and fitness benefits from a session. Alongside our CrossFit box, we offer regular SUP bootcamps where you’ll use your board for exercise. With the gym onsite, if the weather isn’t suitable, there’s always an alternative, and we’ll focus on building strength and honing your technique for paddling, even when we’re not on the water. Take a look at our class timetable to check times and prices.


Our passion for SUP extends beyond offering lessons and tours. We’ve established WeySUP - a SUP club that organises regular paddles and social events to help you meet other water lovers and enjoy the sport.

You can join club paddles or use the group to find company on SUP tours you’re planning yourself. Join our group on Facebook to find out what’s going on.

Ever wanted to discover the Jurassic Coast from the water? A leisurely kayak tour is the best way to go - paddle at your own pace, enjoy the tranquility of your surroundings and admire the stunning Dorset scenery.

We have BCU-qualified instructors and guides who are on hand to help whether you’re getting used to a kayak for the first time or want a knowledgeable local guide to help you navigate the waters around the Fleet, Portland and its harbour.

We hire out our kayaks and also run kayak safaris to show you some of our beautiful local coastline, all part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site that is the Jurassic Coast. Chesil Beach and the Fleet lagoon - a narrow channel of water that runs between the pebble beach and the mainland - is a unique geological feature home to varied wildlife, and one that’s best explored from the water.

Motorised craft are discouraged from entering this peaceful strip of water, making a kayak the ideal way to travel if you want to see the nesting terns, colony of hares or other stunning wildlife at close quarters.

Check our price list to see all the options or come and chat to us if you’d like to know more about joining one of our kayak safaris.

About Us

We’re a friendly bunch of water and fitness lovers - and we’re always happy to meet anyone else who shares our passions, or who just wants to know more about getting active on the beautiful Jurassic Coast.

Weymouth Watersports & Fitness Club was founded by Richard Fabbri. All he had initially was a truck, some SUPs and a vision to introduce stand-up paddleboarding to Weymouth and Portland. From these humble beginnings he’s developed a thriving centre and community of likeminded people who want to keep fit, get out on the water and just enjoy life.

He’s gradually added to his team of coaches and while we all specialise in different areas - from SUP and kayaking to personal training and yoga - we all have one thing in common: a love of the sea, being active and introducing people to new sports.

Come and talk to us if you’d like to know more about what we offer, or have any questions about our activities. If you can’t find what you’re looking for on our site, give us a call or pop in and if we can’t help you then chances are that we’ll know someone who can!

We look forward to meeting you and getting out on the water soon.
