An outstandingly beautiful place to explore the local waterways. We've run many of our trips from here in the past and absolutely love the River Dart. Specialising in beginner and family-friendly trips, we can organise more challenging adventures as well. There is always plenty to see and do and you just never know what's around the next bend. Our base in Totnes is the perfect gateway for little and big adventures for all abilities. Come along and give it a try.
There is a lot of wildlife such as seals, herons and egrets very close by and if you are lucky you may even see the odd kingfisher. Not to mention great places to visit like Agatha Christie's old summer house and The Ferry Boat Inn pub!
