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.
