Many thanks to Ben for a great 3 and a bit hours on (and in for some) the water. Good instruction, good games and a good introduction to the rapids. Highly recommended.

Our first canoeing experience and definitely not our last. We had all the help and advice we needed beforehand (our favourite being "try not to capsize!"), service was friendly and the trip up the river was beautiful and peaceful. Would highly recommend.
