Seven days of floatable fun during Portland Week

Try paddleboarding in Portland

Seven days of activities and one event to rule them all...

There's something happening every day of Portland Week from taster sessions, talks, competitions and wacky races so there's bound to be something to jump in with! It's all in aid of Clean Jurassic Coast, helping to keep our stunning coastline playground free from litter and pollution.

Most activities, free or paid, will need to be booked with us via the button below or directly with the provider of the activity via the specified link or contact details. 

Come in & see

Threatened Isle

Local artist Ian Dyke's thought provoking art installation will be hosted in the event marquee and marina office during Portland Week. A sobering collection of stark photographic images featuring the deities Gaia and Neptune surrounded and caught in discarded plastic, Threatened Isle seeks to highlight the issue of plastic pollution in the natural environment. 

Ian's installation will be available for everyone to view daily throughout the week, times will vary depending on the activities hosted in the event marquee.
