A beautiful day spent outdoors, kayaking, swimming , rope swinging, eating ice creams... Peaceful quiet water, with tons of dragonflies everywhere. Owner John was very helpful, friendly and professional. Equipment was new, of a really great quality and all we needed was included in the price. We will be back, with lots of friends. Thank you Elveys Canoe.

Had a fantastic day kayaking with my Granddaughter. John and Karen were friendly, welcoming, and very helpful. They supply all the equipment and information you require, and some very useful instruction at the beginning if you're a novice. John gave us some great tips about where to go, and where to find a great Riverside café. Excellent all round. Steve

Absolutely amazing day, great experience. John & Karen extremely helpful, providing all the information you will need making, all equipment provided. Great day on the river, perfect weather, even stopped for a picnic. Chutes were great fun, but be prepared to get wet! Will definitely be booking again. Thank you for a great day.
