Our intention is for every paddle to be unique, so if you wish to book all four they will be in different locations (subject to weather). Unique views of historic castles, morning sunrise paddles in local wildlife reserves and improving your skills in a wide range of environments this is a great way to relax, enjoy and improve.

Each adventure involves a full day of paddling and we provide experienced instructors and top of the range equipment. Customers are advised to bring a small packed lunch preferably in water proof bag.

Open to 13yrs+ and paddlers that have some experience or completed a Coast to Coast beginner paddle class. Customers should be fit and able to swim 50m.
