Explore Grebe Lake: A tranquil water sports haven

We’re excited to announce the opening of Grebe Lake, the perfect spot for water sports lovers. Located in the beautiful Whitmore Lakes, Grebe Lake offers a fantastic setting for stand-up paddle boarding and kayaking.

Whether you’re experienced and wanting to perfect your skills or just starting out, our lake is the ideal place for some water fun.

Grebe Lake features a 200-meter canal leading to a 1.5-acre lake with a depth of 6-8 feet. It has a designated entry/exit point and two emergency exits, one at the canal junction and one near the parking area.

You have the option to bring along your own gear and ‘self launch’ or opt for the convenience of our on-site SUP rentals. Buoyancy aids must be worn at all times (these are provided as standard with our rentals at no extra cost). There is a minimum age requirement of 11 years. While most participants will use their own boards, if you are sharing, please note that a maximum of two people are allowed per board.

Motorised water sports and swimming are not permitted in the lake. However, if you’re yearning for a quick dip after all that paddling, why not extend your adventure by combining a session at ‘Grebe’ with a refreshing swim session at ‘Swan’?
