Open Canoeing

Our Open Canoeing courses take place on quiet, gentle sheltered sections of rivers or on sheltered lakes. It generally involves working in pairs, using single ended paddles. 

Canoeing is a very popular activity in which everyone can get wet in the end, even the instructors, if you dare!

Providing conditions are not too cold or windy, this activity can take place throughout the year. The colder the conditions however, the more important it is for participants to view this as a dry activity.
