Just had a brilliant 3 hours with Hugh as our guide. My wife andI paddled an Old Town open canoe from Stoke Gabriel up stream to near Totnes. Beautiful scenery, advice and information. We are used to paddling but wanted an introduction to the Dart. This is exactly what we got. So “Thank you” to Totnes Kayaks and Mark and especially Hugh

Myself and 2 friends hired kayaks for 3 hours. I'd never kayaked before, they had done it once in the distant past. We paddles up to Sharpham and got out for coffee and cake before paddling back to Stoke Gabriel again. The River there is beautiful and we had lots of laughs getting used to the kayaks. You'll definitely get wet legs and a wet bum so take a change of clothes and towel for afterwards! I'll do it again for sure.

Fantastic day kayaking along the river dart. We hired 2 singles for six hours and had a great experience. Really friendly and knowledgable staff who helped us with advice and route planning. Great quality kayaks and safety equipment. Big bonus seeing seals up close. Thanks guys !

We've rented kayaks from Tones Kayaks twice over recent years and on both occasions it was a really enjoyable and relaxing experience. The team are very friendly, explained everything really clearly and answered all of our questions and concerns very patiently! Would highly recommend.

We as a family are on holiday in the surrounding area and wanted to experience exploring around the gorgeous river dart. The company Totnes kayaks were so friendly, welcoming and had very clear communication. It felt really relaxed and we were all able to take in the surroundings around us. Everything was perfect and clear and cannot thank the team enough at Totnes kayaks for this amazing experience. We would really recommend this company to anyone that wants to do this activity for the experience.
