More Info

All of the canoeing trips are designed to be a gentle paddle in pleasant surroundings and are not too physically demanding; however you need to have the ability to paddle for the duration of the activity. As we allow for regular rests generally speaking if you can walk 100m you will be fine. In canoes you are only likely to get spray from the paddles so do not need to bring any specific items with you. All that is required is outdoor clothing you don’t mind potentially getting wet and secure closed toe footwear. We will provide you with a buoyancy aid, paddle and canoe which is all you require. If however you would like to bring extra items with you then you can at your own risk.

There is no upper age limit as long as the individual has the ability to use the paddle, we have taken out many older people who have wanted to join us and encourage everyone to give it a go!

As this is a full day trip you can either bring your own lunch or purchase food from the Boat and Anchor Inn as we stop close to here for our lunch break.

Our full day trip is:
Adult (over 12) – £30
Child (under 12) – £15
Small Family (2 adults + 1 child) – £75
Family (2 adults + 2 child) – £80

Either visit the events page and book onto one of our pre planned trips or if you are a group of 4 or more why not get in touch with us to arrange a trip on a day of your choosing!

None, almost any one of any age or ability, with or without experience can take part in canoeing. If you do have experience and want to improve your personnel ability we can also improve your technique and maybe teach you some new ones!
General outdoor clothing and secure closed toe footwear are required due to the nature of the canal banks; flip flops are not permitted. If you wish to bring other items along you may, we can provide various watertight containers on request.
We only need some basic details about any participants including medical and additional needs which can be given to us using our booking form, that’s it!
Canoes are very stable crafts, as long as you move slowly and listen to the instructor you are only likely to get wet from the spray from paddles as you go along.

There is certainly no upper age limit, as long as the individual has the ability to use the paddle. We have taken out many older people who have wanted to join us and encourage everyone to give it a go!

The lower age limit is determined by the size of the individual as every participant must fit safely in a buoyancy aid. As we have junior sized buoyancy aids this is possible for most over 3 years of age, if unsure please contact us.
