Canoeing is often described as one of the most accessible water sports in the UK. Canoeing involves paddling a light, narrow boat with a single bladed paddle.
We offer canoeing on the river from our Taunton centre, the perfect place to give it a go! You can choose to hire a canoe and explore the river tone on your own, see Taunton from a new perspective and if you’re feeling adventurous paddle and join the Taunton and Bridgwater canal. You can also join one of our instructed sessions to learn the fundamentals, take part in some challenges and maybe even see some of the local wildlife. You can also book a 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. 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. Please see our group pages for more information.
It is important to us that you experience good quality equipment during your time with us. In Taunton we have Silverbirch canoes. Buoyancy aids and all safety equipment are provided when canoeing. We do always recommend bringing a change of clothes when canoeing – just in case.
