Home / Active Ramsgate / Watersports


You can’t visit Ramsgate without coming into contact with the sea. There’s a whole raft (sorry!) of ways to get active in the water, and visitors will have a hard time choosing what to do!

For example, did you know that Ramsgate is a record breaking kitesurfing destination?

Leading kitesurfing champion Lewis Crathern headed to Ramsgate Sands, and jumped a whopping 22.3 metres high, smashing his own British record in the process.

Ramsgate is now somewhat of a kitesurfing haven, and every year, hundreds flock to the beach to take advantage of the perfect weather conditions.

For the first time this year, Ramsgate now offers the chance for visitors to book and take part in kitesurfing lessons on the beautiful Ramsgate Sands.

So if you want to give it a go for the first time or even book regular lessons then all you need to do is to contact Thanet Diving and Watersports, who are based in the arches just beside Ramsgate’s Royal Harbour.

All equipment is provided, so all you need to do is to book, turn up and hope it’s a windy day!

But there’s not just kitesurfing on offer, but Thanet Diving and Watersports also offers other ways to experience the beautiful coastal waters.

For example, you can get out and about with the team to learn scuba diving. Whether you are a beginner or want to get involved with dives that are suitable for more experienced divers, then there are options available for all.

Likewise, paddleboarding is also another option, the waters around Ramsgate are perfect for anyone looking to paddleboard. It’s so much fun!

So, for more information, give Thanet Diving and Watersports a call, or a visit, they can be found at the Arches or call them on 07981 551922.
