Example 3. We cater for larger groups, max 20 at the moment, due to COVID 19 regulations (stag & hen parties, team-building and/or company events). We can place several instructors with a larger group, but remember, don’t drink and paddle !
The above are examples of bespoke trips and cost depends upon the group size, accommodation if staying overnight, and where we set off from.
Example 4. You are an experienced paddler and you want to do a big trip with your partner (don’t ever paddle alone). You only need the equipment. No problem, we can hire the equipment only, to you, but we will insist on checking out your paddling credentials first !
Please contact us and we’ll give you a quote. It will be less expensive than you probably imagine.
Full Day Expeditions
By its nature, a whole day paddling experience is more challenging due to the amount of time you will be on the board. Typically, we will paddle for around five or six hours per day, depending on river flow and weather conditions.
A one day expedition will cover 20 – 40 km, depending on river flow rate and rider ability. We will leave early in the morning and stop for lunch and a good rest during the hottest part of the day. We’ll conclude the day with another 2-3 hours paddling. There will be plenty of rest stops along the way. That’s part of the beauty about paddling on the river – even when you stop for a break, the river continues to carry you onward!
Whole day paddles are not suitable for complete beginners and if you have not done our beginner’s lesson, we will need you to first demonstrate some basic paddling skills, like standing, paddling straight, turning and paddling against the slow flow of the River Kwai.
Contact us to arrange this.
What to bring?
Bring board shorts or just PE shorts and a T-shirt or long sleeved shirt. Also a pair of shoes or flip-flops that you don’t mind getting wet. Slap on a hat and slop on some sun cream and you’ll be good to go. Bring a towel as there is a chance you will get wet. Bring a filled water bottle so you can take a drink and maybe a snack. A dry bag is useful for phones and wallet.
We’ll supply a personal flotation device and leash for safety, and of course a suitably sized board and paddle ready to go.
