Thank you for your review, the river is a beautiful place to spend an afternoon and we’re glad you enjoyed it. Being on the river bank does mean we have limited facilities, and sometimes we do have to share the water with larger boats, but...More

Had been looking for a way to trial kayaking and Canoe Wild is perfect. Had a fab 2 hour trip from Fordwich to Grove Ferry, lovely lunch at the pub and then a lift back to the start. Will definitely go again!
