canoeing afternoon with friends

Brilliant afternoon, everyone in our party of seven had a great afternoon. Right amount of instruction and freedom. No fuss, weather fantastic and the scenery was stunning.

For reference I live in Lincolnshire We had a trip booked and deposit paid for the Saturday 24th March. On 22nd March I looked at the water level in the Wye and could see it was very high. I called the Canoe centre to see if it was going to be cancelled. The reply was yes and they were going... More

Hi, I write in response to your review with regards our safety and cancellation policy. AS with any reputable canoe company we take clients safety as our top priority. Unfortunately on occasions which are obviously beyond our control we have to cancel trips due to not only high river levels but other factors that could effect the safety of the... More

Booked this for something different to do on Easter Sunday, booking was easy and Mark answered any questions I had beforehand. Turned up well signposted once you turn into Symonds Yat West, the information you receive once you have booked is clear and precise so there are no hidden surprises. Welcomed by the team and conducted the formalities pretty quickly,... More

Had a fabulous family day. Friendly staff. Instruction clear and informative. We gently paddled our way down river admiring scenery and wildlife. Had time to stop and eat/drink. Even the teenagers enjoyed it. RESULT! Will definitely be back. Thanks guys.

Tips: - Bring a picnic. There was a shop nearby but it was obviously above average prices. - Remember to bring water and sun cream if it's going to be a sunny day. - There's no need for experience using a canoe although it's always advantageous. The Canadian canoe you'll be using is very difficult to capsize. Pros: - All... More
