Kayaking in South Devon, Stoke Gabriel, Totnes, Dartmouth

There’s no better way to explore the stunning River Dart in South Devon than by sit on top kayak. Paddling gives an amazing sense of freedom.  You are right there at river level, experiencing nature and wildlife close up! Our customers regularly paddle with a wild seal and see kingfishers and herons close up.  We will take time with to show you where the best pubs and picnic areas are depending on the tides and weather, and give you a map and dry bag so you dont get lost and can carry a mobile!! 

Our kayaks are incredibly stable and will give you the confidence to explore the river even if you’re a complete beginner.  You don’t have to be athletic or worry about bringing special gear.

Each day we monitor weather and tidal conditions to ensure your safety, and have a safety boat on standby at all times.
