Grove Ferry,


Our guided paddles are the ideal escape into a beautiful and quiet part of Canterbury. These picturesque 'Go Canoeing' Tours are led by our friendly and experienced coaches happy to share their knowledge of the local area, wildlife and passion for paddling.

**2015 & 2016 TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellent award winner!**

Each tour is up to 3 hours long, paddling 5 miles on the River Stour from Fordwich to Grove Ferry, making the trip the ideal escape alongside the beautiful Stodmarsh National Nature Reserve. There is an abundance of wildlife to be seen, including a vast variety of birds such as kingfishers, grebes and egrets. We'll take a gentle paddle to give you plenty of photo opportunities - so don't forget your camera!

Everyone is welcome, whether you're new to paddling or an experienced paddler, with no age limits as coaches will be on hand to help and all canoeing equipment and buoyancy aids are provided. After the tour we will drive you back to Fordwich where you can explore Britain's smallest town.

Start times vary, including our popular early morning paddle to get up close to wildlife at the best part of the day!

Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or queries.
Spaces limited - please book in advance. Under 18s MUST be accompanied by an adult.
