I have never been canoeing/kayaking before, is that a problem?

Not at all, we have beginners all the time. Canoeing and kayaking is relatively straight forward so you will get the hang of it in no time.

We will show you how to paddle before you start. We also explain how to get in and out of the canoes and how to stay safe on the water.

Please be aware though that you will need to demonstrate to us that you are able to control the boat before we allow you to set off. This is to ensure the safety of yourself as well as other river users. If we are not confident that you are able to control the boat we will either give you further tuition or in certain occasions we may decide that your trip will need to be cancelled.
