(Family Ticket: 2 Adult + 2 Child - Save £10)
Suitable for:All Ages

'The perfect day out' we have been running for over 21 years.  Formerly known as 'Friends and Family By-the-seat'.   Proper, timeless, healthy fun for friends and family to enjoy together on the water and on the shore.   Paddling, ice cream, firebuilding, catching crabs, tea, biscuits and laughter, all rolled into one great adventure.   Remembered as 'the best day of the holidays' by children up and down the country, many of whom are now grown up. 

Adventures last for 4.5 to 5 hours!  So think of your Canoe Adventure as a whole day out.  We're not paddling all the time.  In fact we spend as much time on the shore as we do on the water.  We break the paddling up into 20-50 minute sections, with breaks on the shore in between. We usually stop to visit the River Shack Cafe at Stoke Gabriel, and stop at least once more on the shore to build a fire and have a picnic. 

The itinerary for this trip includes the following activities.

  • Camp Fire Building
  • Wildlife Watching
  • Stoke Gabriel ice cream stop

We start and finish beside the excellent Maltsters Arms Pub at Tuckenhay (TQ9 7EQ), lying halfway between Totnes and Dartmouth. Sometime we start from Stoke Gabriel, which is on the other side of the estuary, between Totnes and Paignton.  Parking is nearby.  Times vary daily according to the tide.  Booking is essential.  Instructions including directions are provided on booking.
