We arrived not knowing what to expect. We looked up times of the various lengths and decided on the 10km trip. We booked and got to the counter half hour early to pick up our equipment. Myself and girlfriend opted for a kayak each and were given a waterproof box, life jacket, paddles and a ribbon to tie to our sunglasses to keep them secure all included in the price, but also bought some extremely well priced shoes ideal for getting wet (although you can wear any well fitting shoes of your choice). We were promptly all bundled on to the minibus and taken 10kms out to the starting point. The very friendly driver explained (in good English I may add, like all staff) tips for the journey. We took the 3hrs quoted for our 10km, although you could do it quicker in one hit. It's timed as such to give you opportunity to stop on the numerous private beaches to admire the scenery and eat a packed lunch (hence the waterproof boxes you are given are such a great idea!). The river was fairly shallow in places due to the dam being closed but was easily passable. The rapids are a nice and very fun feature. I'll admit to ending up in the water myself, but it was actually quite refreshing! You are not limited by time so can take as long as you like, provided you are back at base by 7pm - in my mind very reasonable. All in all a fantastic day out and I can't sing their praises loud enough without it sounding like I work for them! If I'm back in the Roquebrun area in future (which I'm sure I will be) I will certainly be back. It was my girlfriend's first time on a longish kayaking trip and she is already itching to get back in a boat!
