This brilliant water sports company is your one-stop-shop for messing about on the river. Perfect family fun - or girls' day out. Paddles at the ready!

Weekend Escapes

This brilliant water sports company is your one-stop-shop for all the messing-about-on-the-river fun you can possibly imagine. Join the friendly team on the beautiful River Stour where you can hire canoes, kayaks, paddleboards and much more.

The team offer Taster Sessions, Courses, Private Lessons & Guided Tours. They even specialise in Children’s Parties or Hen Dos with a difference. Choose your mode of transport and then the distance you want to go. Just an hour? No problem! They can provide the perfect route. Fancy a bit more of a challenge? Try the canoe trip from Fordwich to Grove Ferry, which takes 2.5 hours.

A brilliant activity to do with the kids, a visit to Canoe Wild makes the perfect day trip for the school holidays or even a great girls’ day out (ie leave the kids at home). What’s more the hire centre sits on the Grove Ferry Picnic Site, the perfect spot for enjoying refreshments alongside the picturesque banks of the Great Stour River.

Why not try one of their Sunset Paddles? These trips are a unique chance to capture the river at a gorgeous time of the day with paddle instruction from a qualified coach who will lead a peaceful, enjoyable and magical paddle.

With all the options available there’s something for everyone, all run from their base in The Paddle House, Grove Ferry Picnic Site, Canterbury. Let’s do this!
