Our first family canoeing trip, and it was fabulous! Superb location, and facilities and a brilliant, friendly and knowledgeable instructor. The kids absolutely loved it, as did we. A great holiday memory made! Definitely recommend and we'll definitely be back again.

We did the family canoeing and had an amazing time! Excellent instructor and my son enjoyed it so much that we rebooked for another date.

The staff were really friendly and chatty on arrival. Clear instructions and explanation as to what will be happening etc. Very helpful fitting the life vests and ensuring that they were fitting properly. Really encouraging and helpful out on the water.

Great canoe tour at sunset, even though I was very scared of water, all went fab! The guide was knowledgeable and shared lots of interesting information about the local area. Great views too!

The family canoeing was excellent! From the very start it was easy to book and the communication was great! Callum was our guide on the day and he was helpful, friendly and very good with our two kids (4 years and 23 months). He expertly instructed us, pointed out the wildlife and filled us in on the local area. The 90 minute session was perfect for the kids and only flew by because it was so much fun. I can’t recommend them highly enough, will definitely be using them again!
