Had to pop in to quickly buy a new paddle for my paddleboard as I'd lost it on the river. Great selection for all budgets.

Well organised and happy instructors ready to go the extra mile if you need help doing activities, full of encouragement and will help you as much as possible. Would happily do canoeing and caving again felt safe all the time. Thanks

Use this company twice now, for a 3 day canoe trip. Very professional etc etc would recommend. Couple of suggestions - 1- pick up point in Hereford is bad. We had 5 canoes and 9 strong guys and it was a slog. Not so easy for young and old. Please find another place. 2-laminated maps. Good but please add more details like approx distance/time, notebale landmarks and pubs/shops.
