Hereford Canoe Hire Trips
Due to the nature and strong flow of the River Wye, it's not possible to paddle upstream which means all our trips are one way (down stream!)
But don't worry, we don't expect you to walk back or bother with the hassle of shuttle runs, we'll sort out your transport and the lugging about of the kit.
This involves either transporting you up river to the start point so that you can paddle/float back to your car or pick you up from the end point down river and return you to the start.
After a friendly welcome we will kit you out with appropriately-sized buoyancy aids, paddles and dry storage barrels.
We'll give you a thorough bank-based briefing covering getting in/out of the canoe safely, basic strokes and manoeuvring, typical hazards and how to avoid them and a capsize drill.
After allocating one or more of our large, safe, open style canoes we'll get you launched offering final words of advice and encouragement before you head off down river
