About Us

Based in Chester, we specialise in canoe and kayak hire on the amazing River Dee, which from Chester is a 12 mile stretch of calm, gently flowing water that meanders through beautiful surroundings; offering peace, tranquillity and an abundance of wildlife

We offer guided and unguided trips, taster sessions, private coaching and group bookings for novices and experts alike. You can even rent our boats and take them away if you wish. Our Canadian Canoes, sit-on-top kayaks and safety gear are all high quality and regularly checked for their safety. Our instructors are time served, qualified paddlers who enjoy sharing their passion for being on the water, as are most of our bankside staff.

We are a small, friendly company, run by a handful of outdoor professionals. We don’t have an office base, or full time staff doing our admin, but we have a dedicated phone number, where, if you can’t talk to someone immediately, you can leave a message and we will do our best to get back to you as soon as we possibly can. Alternatively, we constantly monitor our email and Facebook comments. So there’s always a way to get in touch with us and chat over what you want to achieve.

We’re always happy to help, and totally believe that the human brain can solve problems better than a computer, so if you don’t see what you want online, give us a ring, or send us a message, and we’ll do our best to get you paddling!
