F.A.Q's

 

Q: Where can I find the Participation Statement and Terms and Conditions? 

A: Well done for seeking this information. Right here: Useful Information.

Q: How long is this experience?

A: Most trips will take around 3 hours from meeting at the start point until we wave you goodbye at the end. If you have booked a full day experience this will last approximately twice that length, but we will arrange any full day trip directly with the booker so as to take advantage of seasonal differences in daylight and the type of experience. 
 

Q: What should I bring for my 'White Water' Trip? 
A: On any trip that is from the 'White Water' category, please bring a bathing suit to wear beneath your wetsuit, a towel to dry off afterwards, and something warm to jump right into. You will get WET.  All of our activities require participants to wear closed-toe footwear throughout, so it is essential that you bring a spare pair of shoes so that you can wear one on the river and the other on the way home. 

Q: What should I bring for my 'Calm Water' Trip?

A: If cool weather is expected, please bring a set of warm clothes suitable for watersports activity (Think winter gym kit: no jeans, no cotton T-Shirts), and waterproofs to go over the top. If very warm weather is expected then swim shorts and a T-shirt is usually fine! Be sure to bring a change of clothes and a towel! Your boat is unlikely to capsize on this trip, but water dripping from your paddle will cause you to have a wet bum at least! All of our activities require participants to wear closed-toe footwear throughout. It is essential that you bring a spare pair of shoes so that you can wear one on the river and the other on the way home.

Q: What equipment will be provided? 

A: Boats (Those who are able may be asked to assist in pumping them up)

-Paddles

-Wetsuits (As standard on White Water activities, and by request on Calm Water ones).

-Helmets 

-Life Jackets

Q:What are the boats like?

A: Our kayaks PVC heavy-duty inflatables. Picture a single-person whitewater raft. These are fun, stable, spacious and easy to steer. This style of kayak offers the user all of the light-hearted fun and freedom of being in a raft, with the added satisfaction and control of a kayak.  

Q: Can I bring my own boat, paddle or other equipment to this tour?
A: Absolutely! Please note however, any equipment not provided by us must be subjected to a safety inspection by the instructor prior to use, to ensure it is safe and appropriate for your session. 

Q: Are under 18's welcome, and do you run sessions just for them?

A: Yes, if they are each accompanied by a parent or legally appointed guardian.  Right now, young people are very welcome on sessions if accompanied, but we are not yet running sessions just for them. We plan to begin to offer these sessions, but are currently working on setting everything up so its just right! Until then, young people are very welcome on all of our sessions so long as their age and size is appropriate to the chosen activity, and they are each accompanied by a parent or legally appointed guardian. 

Q: U18's and Whitewater? 

A: From the age of 12, young people are very welcome on all of our trips as long as accompanied by a parent, and will enjoy paddling their own boat. Between the ages of 8-11, young people may join a white water session so long as they share a tandem boat with someone who has white water kayaking experience. We can provide an expert tandem guide at an additional cost. 

Q: How much do trips cost? 
A: You can find prices attached to all activities on the Booking Page. You may also like to check out the Gift Vouchers page, where you can often find deals.
