This taster session gives you the opportunity to experience the sport of Open or Canadian canoeing. This stable craft offers a safe experience on the water for the less confident whilst allowing the those with more experience a chance to discover Open canoeing. Our aim is that you will find this session fun, informative and safe, whetting the appetite for one of our touring or BCU Award courses.
Why not combine Open Canoeing with Mountain Biking, Orienteering, Team Building/ Problem Solving Exercises, Archery, Abseiling, Rock Climbing or Gorge Walking to create an Adventure Day of activities?
Schools and youth groups
All participants in canoeing sessions will be accredited under the BCU Paddlepower scheme or work towards the "Star Award " accreditation scheme.
White Water Day - Canadian
This is the fastest growing part of the sport, an ideal craft for families, expeditions or camping trips. On the course you will learn all about boat handling skills. A common misconception is that these boats are unstable in moving, especially rough, water. In truth the Open Canoe is an excellent method of negotiating white water. We are able to offer Open Canoe expeditions which can be combined with other activities to make a few day away or be part of a Duke of Edinburgh's Award expedition. Call to discuss your requirements.
