Restrictions that remain in place at this time are:

  • Maximum group size is six for hires, five on guided sessions as we count the instructor.
  • We are unable to work with unaccompanied children at this time, except for our Monday evening club for teens.
  • All hires and guided sessions must be pre-booked. We are not able to accept walk-up customers until further notice.

There is no jostling for position here as you quietly paddle beneath the bridges, snapping pictures and enjoying the view as you go.
