Have a go on the river

Temperatures and high river levels mean we're not taking new beginners on the river now.


Let us know you're up for a go on the river and we'll get in touch when we know we can make it safe. It's likely to be in the spring now.

What to bring


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

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

Jacket: 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

Full change of clothes that are dry for when you're 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.
