About

 

Learn how to paddleboard as we meander up calm and safe canal and river waterways. Spot a variety of wildlife from kingfishers to swans as you paddle along the peaceful water. 

Crystal clear water makes you feel a million miles away.

This paddleboarding safari paddle will have you escaping into the countryside. There are elements of short walks and low bridges, but it's all part of the fun!

The perfect activity for friends, families and groups to do something a little different without the distraction of phones or tablets.
