Have a go on the river

Anyone can paddle with us up to four times at the river. After that you have to join to be covered by our insurance.


The river is a very changeable environment and if you're a novice or beginner, we wait for lower levels and settled weather and arrange coaches to look after you. Use the form below to join in on a Thursday evening.


Emails are opened at 9pm on Tuesday evenings for the following Thursday.


We'll let you know if we can or can't make it safe for you: usually this happens when we expect the river to be fierce. If we can't make it safe for you use this form again the next time you can make a Thursday evening.


There is no waiting list. Can't make Thursdays? Email us when you can. Simple.

What to bring


Shoes that don't have laces but do have a toe (water shoes are really good)

You should not wear any cotton on the water

Close fitting thermal / wool top and bottoms eg a fleece jumper a size too small and trackie bottoms

Swimsuit / speedos

Wetsuit, although canoeists don't generally wear them so don't go buying one specially

Lightweight windproof / showerproof jacket

Some money

ID eg driving licence

Emergency contact info to be handed to whoever's on duty that evening with id sight

You should have a full set of warm dry clothes to change back into when you get off the water


You will see experienced paddlers wearing specialist clothing. Ask them about it. They also wear board shorts but we don't recommend these for beginners as when you fall out of a kayak, your legs can get knocked so long trousers are good idea.
