Totnes to Dartmouth

Adult:£45.00Child:£35.00
Suitable for:All ages

Explore the full length of the estuary for a proper expedition.  Experience how the environment changes and the stunning scenery opens up as we paddle with the tide downriver, from a freshwater river to a deep marine harbour with stunning views out to sea.  The historic towns of Totnes and Dartmouth with their prominent castles stand at either end, and the journey is punctuated with history, such as the Sharpham, Sandridge and Greenway estates.  This could be the 12 most beautiful miles in England! 

This may sound like a long way for those of us who are not regular paddlers, but we take it easy.  There are pubs and ice creams en route and we always make one stop for a fire and a brew and maybe even a swim.

Alternatively you can explore sections of the estuary, with one-way adventures starting or ending in Totnes, Sharpham Campsite, Tuckenhay, Stoke Gabriel, Dittisham, Greenway or Dartmouth. 

This is mainly an option for private groups.   Please see bottom of this page for information on plannning the costs and logistics which we will talk through with you.     

We occassionally offer Totnes to Dartmouth to book 'By-the-Seat' and any up and coming trips will be listed here.

Paddling Totnes to Dartmouth is a great adventure and needs some careful planning around the tide, and consideration for what kind of adventure your group is up for and what your budget is. 

We have organised this trip for a wide range of different purposes:  challenge events, school trips, charity fundraisers, stag parties, family holidays, team building. 

With coach access in Totnes and Dartmouth, and no where else on the estuary, this is best way to get big parties out on the water.  We can get 60 adults out in 6 canoes at the same time, 69 if you have small children in your party.

Alternatively you can explore sections of the estuary, with one-way adventures starting or ending in Totnes, Sharpham Campsite, Tuckenhay, Stoke Gabriel, Dittisham, Greenway or Dartmouth.   

There are extra costs involved in one-way trips or starting or ending anywhere other than Tuckenhay or Stoke Gabriel, as there are significant extra logistics for us to take care of behind the scenes.  We will explain the options to you as we help you plan the best way to approach this adventure for your group and budget.    To make it as affordable as possible we base our costs on our standard per person pricing and calculate the extra costs involved in the logistics for your specific trip which we add on top.  So the price becomes less per person the more people you are.
