Kayaks and other equipment in good condition, good safety briefing (i.e. wear helmets if going down the canoe chutes), friendly and efficient organisation, helpful advice about the river and what to expect.

Great service dropping and picking, all the equipment is in excellent condition. The river course was well explained to us. Highly recommend as an active day out in beautiful Kentish countryside.

Yet again John gave my husband and I a great day. He thought of all the little details: a wooden paddle for my husband who was taking a canoe out and a skirt for my kayak! It might not sound like much but no other...More

The river flow is very slow and safe for chidren to enjoy paddling , the water slides add great fun for the family ,it’s also great exercise for your shoulder and arms. Quiet and nice river for a lovely summer day.
