Really friendly guides and reassuring to have a ‘safety’ kayak with us. The guides go the extra mile to keep it fun - one of best days out ever. Highly recommended!

Kids loved it! Husband loved it! I loved it! Family rafting on the Derwent was fantastic from start to finish. Our guide Rick was great fun and kids want to go again. Beware when Rick suggests doing a “wheelie” in the raft !
