Very good service from Kieran. We turned up without booking and were dealt with professionally. Good equipment and safety briefing. We were taken to Hay and then paddled our way back to Whitney. Saw plenty of wildlife including kingfishers. Would thoroughly recommend

A great little company that help you onto the water and maintain contact for your safety and don't rinse you of all your cash! Throughly recommend and will canoe again with them.

Really easy to organise, Kieran and colleagues very down to earth and helpful, everything done without fuss and ultimately had such an enjoyable day on the river. You are given a 'dry' bag to keep all valuables in and a barrel for stuff too. We...More
