Go Canoeing Starter Sessions
What are they?
These are sessions ideal for people who have never been canoeing or kayaking before and want to try it.
We run them every Saturday morning - 9:30am to 11:00am.
Following from Canoe Starter Sessions participants can also participate in Go Canoeing Tours, which are longer trips they can do in either canoe or kayak.
To book online click here, select "Activity" then select one of the Saturday morning Canoeing activities. You'll be able to go kayaking also if you prefer.
Prices are standard Adventure Club rates, £10.00 for non members (£9 off peak) and £7.00 for members. Membership is £4 and lasts the whole calendar year. Membership has to be paid for on the phone. Non members can get a 5% discount if booking online using a discount code ‘online’.
