Available all year round in Open Canoes

We offer guided trips in open canoes, and our equipment is available for hire by experienced paddlers when we're not using it.  

You will be well looked after by an experienced guide who knows the river really well, and knows how to make sure everyone has a great time.  

Open Canoes (guided trips)

1-6 people:  We have a small number of open canoes. These are traditional 'Canadian'-style open canoes.     

We offer two canoes with 1 or 2 adults in each canoe, plus one or two children depending on size.  One of the canoes is slightly larger and can take 3 adults, depending on size and weather conditions. 

£45 per person, minimum charge £180.  

Canoe Hire (without a guide)

Experienced paddlers only may hire our traditional canoes without a guide.  You will need to demonstrate to us that you know how to handle a canoe, including being able to self-rescue.   We may ask for a British Canoeing qualification or a reference from a club, college or other institution, and take a deposit. *

* Why is this?    Our canoes are proper, well-loved 'Old Town' canoes, professionally kitted out. We use them ourselves with our own friends and families, and for guiding.  They perform better than the cheaper canoes you'll find at most hire centres but take a little getting used to, especially in the wind and tides that are common to where we operate.
