Canoeing, Kayaking and Dragon Boat Racing are permitted in groups greater than 6 under the new law of 6. You need a group of 6-12 to book one of our canoes. 5 if we know the wind conditions are going be light. If you are booking our activity as part of a bigger event, eg combining it with a visit to a pub or cafe or another social gathering, you will need to consider this new legislation and it is your responsibility to make a judgement on how to adhere to it.
OPEN for private group bookings. We are not able to operate our 'By-the-Seat' adventures, ie for individuals, couples and small families at the moment.
Our 'By-the-Seat' Adventures are for individuals and small groups of friends or families to join. We'll group you together to make up a full crew.
'Friends and Family Adventures' run during school holidays, half-terms and some summer weekends.
'Pub to Pub & Moonlight Paddles' run throughout the year.
Most start and finish beside the excellent Maltsters Arms Pub at Tuckenhay (TQ9 7EQ), lying halfway between Totnes and Dartmouth. Some start from Stoke Gabriel, which is on the other side of the estuary, between Totnes and Paignton. Some from Dartmouth. Times vary daily according to the tide. Booking is essential.
Group prices - book your own canoe, or fleet of canoes!
We have a fleet of 6 canoes with a capacity to get 60 adults out on the water at any one time, up to 69 if you have very small children:
Please note we have to consider weight and power to operate each canoe safely. By 'paddlers' we generally mean adults or paddling teens, or closest combination, eg 4 adults and 4x7-10 year olds = approx 6or7 paddlers. For this reason it is important we know the age ranges of all your under 18s so we can best advise which canoe you need.
Additional optional costs for private groups:
