Had a great day out kayaking from Keynsham to the Jolly Sailor in Saltford (and back again!). Byron led our trip and was fun, informative but professional. Wouldn't hesitate to book again!

The Katakanus make you feel very stable and are great for inexperienced kayakers. The day trip down the river to the pub and back was great with lots of wildlife spotting on the way. Would definitely recommend.
