We took 2 2 seater canoes on the shortest trip (5km). We went very slowly as all novices and it took about 2 hours once in the water (half an hour after the advertised start time due to the transfer and talk). Beautiful river views and fun mini white watering.

They shoot at children until they cry. Ridiculous people, cano part is fine. But trip is in packed bus in the midst of 2nd covid hype. Irresponsable.

We recently did the 10k trip and it was absolutely fantastic!! We were 4 adults and a 10 year old so hired two canoes and a kayak. None of us have ever done anything like this before, and two of us (myself included) were previously afraid of open water so we were a bit apprehensive to say the least. Saying that - as soon as we got on the water, all anxiety disappeared and we thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it, I would highly, highly recommend it. Things that might be worth noting: - The car park is free but it’s not huge; it’s a bit of a steep decline to it but nothing too scary! You then take a coach to the starting point. - The staff were fantastic and spoke really good English. - We arrived 35 mins early which gives you plenty of time to sign the forms; get your equipment; toilet breaks and change out of clothes if necessary. - You get a plastic tub (three different sizes) for your lunch and valuables which you strap to the canoe. You can get a huge one so you have plenty of space to take towels/ big lunches if you wanted! - When you get in the water there is a flat, calm section you can practice on before you start down the route and hit the first set of rapids if you’ve never done it before. - None of us fell out the whole day but the water is so shallow it really wouldnt have mattered if we had. Plus everyone has to wear a life jacket so you feel completely safe. - Take a leisurely trip at your own pace stopping wherever you want to have a swim, jump off some rocks or have a picnic. - We went in august so expected it to be rammed but we just let the experienced and big groups go ahead of us and then we basically had the river to ourselves the rest of the way. 100% recommend trying this if you’re a regular kayaker or if it’s something completely out of your comfort zone. I can’t wait to go back and do it again!!

I recommend this as a great activity. Professional Pre-book and get an early time to avoid river jams and the sun/heat

We went on what is a very beautiful and exciting family canoe trip in August. The owners of this place clearly intend to rake in as much money as possible and put as many boats as they can on the water. They appeared to be lettting at least 50-60 boats onto the river every half hour to an hour. At the same time they tell everyone they should leave 15 metres between each boat when going down the rapids. With that many boats on the river it is really difficult if not impossible to leave that kind of gap and no one was doing so. With no staff to supervise and make sure people were leaving a gap, it just wasn't happening. We capsized in a rapid towards the end of the easiest 'beginners' route when another boat crashed into us. Myself and an 83 year old woman ended up being pinned against a large rock mid-rapids with one capsized boat over our heads and another capsized boat being pushed against us with the full force of the river. It was only through luck we managed to push the boat off us and shove it to the side of the river and get out alive. It was truly truly scary and felt like we were one step away from a potentially fatal accident. It is simply not safe to put that many boats on a river with no supervision and I'm amazed the owners are actually allowed to operate in this fashion.
