I have had the chance to enjoy some stand up paddle with Richard and the rest the team. They are so knowledgeable and and the same time so friendly that the experience becomes natural. You feel part of the team! Highly recommended!

Lovely clean clearing to camp in. Quality kayaks. Perfect for beginner kayakers as the rivers flat with little current but if you take a longer trip it is still a nice challenge. Thank you Ash, Rich and team for a quality weekend.

Excellent and friendly instructors. Professional attitude. After all 35 dads and 35 kids! At the end of the weekend it seems all children slept all of the car journey home.
