About Canoe Adventures
Guided river adventures on the River Dart Estuary, one of England's most beautiful rivers. Hire your own 8 or 12-seat 'Longbow' canoe, or join a 'by-the-seat' specials trip. Adventures normally begin at the Maltsters Arms, Tuckenhay, and Stoke Gabriel, between the historic towns of Dartmouth and Totnes - with pubs, secret places, campfires, shipwrecks, wildlife and stories along the way. Ideal for groups of all ages and abilities - private parties; club trips; team-building; hen, stag and birthdays; youth development and study trips; pub-to-pub; wine tasting, and evening paddles. Trips are scheduled round the tide so times change daily and booking is essential. Beautiful River. Big Canoes. Great Fun.

Saw seals and different kind of birds. Relaxing day on the river. Stopped off and built a fire and ate some food half way through the trip. Would recommend.

Fantastic adventure. Kids will remember these memories forever! Unfit adults are not a problem! This is something we’ve never done before, but whatever standard or whatever you want from the day, they will adapt the adventure. We opted to have several stop-offs for the kids...More
