Enjoy an easy, leisurely and picturesque paddle, starting from right outside our shop. Explore the calm canal waters, enjoy the unique wildlife and visit great pubs.
We provide all you need to get paddling – basic tuition, buoyancy aids and paddles are all included in the price. We also sell small dry bags for your valuables or you can hire kayak backrests for an additional cost. All you need is to be able to swim! (This includes all children.) Hire for just an hour, several hours or the whole day. Booking always recommended to avoid disappointment! The best way to book is by phone, as we can then take all the information we need to reserve the right equipment for you. No advance payment is required - just call us on 01392 424241.
We have a choice of boats available:
Seat 2 or 3 adults or 2 adults and 2 small children (sharing centre plank seat). Dogs are welcome in our canoes, at your own risk. There is space in the canoes for your picnic or camping gear!
Sit on top style, easy to use, like a large surfboard. Great fun, stable and easy for beginners - but you will get wet, so please bring a change of clothes.
Single kayak – for 1 person
Double kayak – for 2 people
Stand Up Paddle boards (SUPs)
Fun and easy to use, SUPs are a fast growing trend in paddling, where you stand up with a long single blade paddle . Our sturdy inflatable boards are great fun for paddling along the canal. Wear quick dry layered clothing or wetsuits & be prepared to get wet!
