Canoe information

Canadian Canoes (open from May 2022)

How many people can fit in a Canadian Canoe?

2 Adults and up to 2 children – depending upon which canoes are available when you book.

How much is it to hire a Canoe?

£45 for a half day session – total price for the 3 hrs, not per person. The price includes paddles too (!) and buoyancy aids, and initial instruction.

How far can people paddle?

That depends upon how fast you paddle!

We usually say within 2.5km upstream and downstream of Yarm – so that’s 5km to cover within 3 hrs !

Can I bring a picnic?

Absolutely – that’s a great idea!

Please ensure you bring your litter back with you as we all need to look after our nature and wildlife.

Booking for children

Please confirm size of adults and age & size of any children passengers as part of your booking details so we can provide buoyancy aids.

We recommend the Canoes are suitable for children over the ages of 5 only.

Terms & Conditions

Passengers take personal responsibility for themselves and their belongings when on and around the water.

We will provide initial instruction before we let you on the river. Dry bags are also available upon request – no one wants a wet camera or phone!
