The price was excellent much cheaper than other companies. The trip itself was fantastic with great scenery and views. Would highly recommend to anyone thinking of visiting... More

My group hired a mixture of kayaks/canoes for a 3 hour session, good (non patronising) briefing, and range of equipment and safety gear. Thoroughly enjoyed the few hours canoeing, then the minibus arrived to bring us back to the car park, no walking or waiting involved!! Definitely whetted (no pun intended) my appetite to hit the water again. Will definitely... More

As experienced recreational kayakers from Australia with too little time, we were very glad to find single kayaks for half day hire on the Wye. The plastic singles we hired were a short & light sea kayak style with supportive cockpit seat, rear hatch, deck bungy, basic skeg (deployed or not via draw chord) & adjustable foot pegs with room...

I would like to share the experience that I had this year, (2014) in the Wye valley, at Ross-on-Wye. The first visit was with my girlfriend, when we went to Ross-on -Wye to spend a couple of days doing outdoor pursuits, a part of which was a session with Wye Pursuits, conoeing along the river Wye. The owner, Guy Smith,... More

I planned a works day our for over 50 colleagues canoeing down the River Wye. Wye Pursuits were well organised & very helpful both before the event & on the day. I would fully recommend them & intend to use them again in the future. Thanks very much for a great day out.

We rented a canoe to travel down the Wye. The instructions we were given were clear and the staff were very friendly and helpful. We set off from their HQ and Canoed 9 or so miles down the river where they picked us up and drove us back up. Really enjoyed the experience and it was very reasonably priced. Happy... More
