Family Adventures
We specialize in open canoeing and kayaking and have boats suitable for families and groups to paddle together. For our Family paddles we paddle short stretches of river so we can allow younger children to explore the river, discover local locks and build up paddling confidence. Older paddlers are able to paddle with independence in our touring kayaks while our small paddlers can join mum and dad in our open canoes with clip in seats to allow them to join the adventure.
Our family paddling sessions are organised so little paddlers can enjoy their first paddling experience under the watchful eye of our coaching team.
