Great outfit with their own launch site so launching is a breeze compared to the mass crazyness at other sites. Super friendly, good briefing, good equipment and a prompt and friendly shuttle back to the launch Nice

A great day out, even if you're not confident in a canoe! The river can look big, deep and wide. However, it really is very safe to do. Lifejacketes are worn and in most areas of the river, you could stand if you fell out!...More
