Reviews

Eel Pie Island Canoe Trip.

What a wonderful way to spend a Sunday. 
It has made me want to do more on the river.

— P.J..

Great fun and well organised!

You couldn't pick a lovelier part of the river to canoe on, or a better company to do it with!

— M.B.

Perfect trip. Wonderful guide!

My 12 year old was reluctant to get on the water..... "We should do this again" she said as we paddled back.
