Open Canoe Trips



Open Canoe Trips

Full and half day Open canoe trips.

The modern Open Canoe, often refered to as a Canadian Canoe, is a superb craft for exploring lochs, rivers and seas.  One of the best things about the canoe is there are so many options, it can be paddled solo or tandem, with only your lunch or enough equipment for multi day expeditions. On all of our courses we'll work not only on your technical and tactical skills but also your mindset and confidence.

Green Trips - Perfect for families or novice paddlers, looking to get out for the first time ever to have fun on the water.

Blue Trips - Much like green trips these trips are great fro families however unlike our green trips you maybe slighty more exposed to the enviroments. They may include sections of grader water on the river (up to grade 2) and winds upto force 3.

Red Trips - These trips are much more challenging, prior paddling experience is a must, we'll be on Grade 3(4) rivers and and lochs with winds above force 4.
