We are licensed and insured to take Under 18s out in our canoes on the River Dart Estuary between the weir at Totnes and Dartmouth Castle.
We are inspected annually by the Dart Harbour Authority, who issues our commercial operators' licence, and every two years by the Adventure Activities Licensing Authority, part of the Health & Safety Executive (HSE), who issue our license to take out U18s according to a UK national standard. Both those inspections involve an assessment of the qualification and experience of our staff, our operational procedures, and the quality of our vessels and equipment.
Please note that numbers of students and staff attending are an essential part of our Risk Assessment and Safeguarding policy. Appropriate ratio of adults to youngsters agreed in advance of outing; standard practice being at least one adult known to youngsters per boat. We need at least one adult that is known to the young people in each canoe. Please therefore advise us if your numbers change.
