Your 2-day adventures will allow you to journey in open canoes or kayaks along the stunning and tranquil waters of the River Dart, as well as learn and developing your paddling skills along the way.



Taking on one of a number of journeys* through the network of tributaries on the River Dart, you will be exposed to some of the most fantastic views from the water and immerse yourself in exploring the waterways, creeks and wooded banks by kayak or canoe. Paddling on the River Dart offers something for everyone, with gently meandering stretches as the river winds into the South Hams. Between Totnes and Dartmouth, the scenery is spectacular and there are some wonderful places you can explore.

After meeting your qualified and experienced Westcountry Guide, you will receive your equipment and briefing before getting afloat. We will provide you with coaching to ensure you have the skills to support a smooth and enjoyable journey.

Please discuss accommodation options when making your booking, so we can advise and plan your adventure around your accommodation.
