ALL ABOUT THIS EXPERIENCE

Hampshire Canoeing Taster

Enjoy an experience out on the water ways of the New Forest and explore some of the hidden creeks the are home to scores of wild life accompanied by an expert guide.

Canoeing in Hampshire doesn't get much better than with this two hour taster session on the Beaulieu River in the New Forest. In open top Canadian canoes that seat two to three people, you will embark on a paddle around the nature reserve exploring the hidden creeks and spotting the abundance of wild life lead by a fully qualified and knowledgeable guide. The estuary is tidal and protected from the sea meaning the water is usually calm making this a great experience for beginner paddlers to learn the basics of canoeing with some fun and games along the way.Your canoeing taster in Hampshire will begin with a welcome to the centre where you will be kitted up with the safety gear and waterproofs. Your instructor will then give you a quick safety talk and discuss where you will go and what you will see on the experience before heading to the jetty to get into the Canoe's. The instructor and guide will be on hand to help you master the correct paddling technique if you have never done it before, prior to setting off down the river to start exploring. After two hours out on the water among the hidden creeks and wildlife, you will return to the centre where you will be able to get changed in to warm, dry clothes.
