See Taunton from a whole new perspective! We also offer 1-1 lesson, please contact us directly for this.
If you are a group of 8 people or more canoeing is also available as a bespoke private booking in Taunton. Take a guided tour down the river or have an introductory session. We also offer KataKanu’s, these are extremely stable boats great for those a little nervous or those who don’t wish to get wet but still enjoy the beautiful river.
