The Grand Self Guided Canoe Adventure

Richmond
canoe - Up to 21 people

Description

For when two and a half hours is not enough...


A self guided adventure for couples, families or households is a great socially distanced way of getting into outside spaces and to explore a little closer to home.


You will be supplied with buoyancy aids, which must be worn on all of our activities, beautifully stable open canoes, paddles and a dry bag for your needs. A guide will provide a socially distanced briefing before you journey into the Back of Beyond…. You may paddle between the iconic Richmond Bridge and Teddington Lock. Take the time to explore the islands and riverside jungle as you go.


Equipment is cleaned between every session.


What to bring

For all of our canoe adventures we recommend that you wear shorts, running tights, or similar, and wear a t-shirt with additional layers appropriate for the day. You also need footwear to paddle with, for example old trainers.

Many people choose to pack their favourite food and drink for a riverside picnic or, if you're planning on stopping at a riverside pub, remember a bank card or similar.

Requirements

You should be confident on and around water, but you do not need to be able to swim. If this is the case do let us know on the night if you are a weak or non swimmer so that we're aware of it.

Itinerary

Our friendly team will provide you with dry bags, PFDs (buoyancy aids) and your SUP and paddle.

The session starts with a briefing and introduction to paddling before taking to the water for your journey into the Back of Beyond...

  1. Paddle the water between Richmond Bridge and Teddington Lock.
  2. Explore the islands and riverside jungle as you go.
  3. Stop for a riverside picnic and swim.
  4. Visit a riverside cafe or pub.
