About
Just £35pp for 2-3 hours or £120 per family. We are the local kayaking club (part of the Dartmouth Yacht Club) and we offer a very special service to visitors. One of our experienced club paddlers will take you out on a paddle around the estuary and beaches nearby. We make our sessions fun and informative. You will go away thinking this is a sporting activity you want to do again - we design our taster sessions to encourage people to join this sport and we can point you towards your local canoe club back home if you dont live round here. When you come out with us you will also be helping a local club - the monies raised from your trip go towards our club equipment fund. Send us an email with the number in your party, ages of all under 18, when you are free and your contact mobile number and email.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I booked a taster session for my husband and me at DYC with instructor Phil. We were both very much beginners, but immediately felt at ease with Phil, who is very
knowledgeable, experienced and friendly. We spent a few hours in total on the beautiful River Dart learning basic kayaking skills and making our way along the river towards Dartmouth Castle and back again. It's a fabulous way to see the hidden creeks and coves and to look back to Dartmouth and Kingswear and get a different perspective, if you are lucky you might spot some wildlife too.
The Yacht Club provided the equipement and they have changing and shower facilities, as well as a bar and restaurant you can make use of.
Both of us would highly recommend this experience, we had such fun and will definately be kayaking again.
Thank you Phil for making it a safe, fun and interesting session. Rachel and Mark

If you're thinking of taking a shower at the yacht club, Just DON'T!! You have a buy a token at the bar that lasts less then 5 minutes, the water went from freezing cold to scolding Hot. By the time you managed to get the right temperature to stand under it your time is up!! Left with lather on my body which I had to rinse off in the sink outside the cubicle. It's a Joke & a rip off. Public humiliation all round. Just don't do it!! You have been warned. I was left furious 😡

Really good fun. Excellent value for money. Tim was very knowledgeable and you always felt you were in safe hands, even if you are a beginner. Couldn't recommend it more highly and I would definitely do it again when back in the area.

Tim took us (family of four) on a fantastic DYC kayak taster session on 21 Aug. Clearly very experienced, his relaxing manner, local knowledge and sense of fun provided us with a wonderful introduction to kayaking on the Dart and the DYC equipment. We particularly enjoyed the rafting and mermaid, and I think we learnt some skills as well!

We stopped by for a family lunch and had the downstairs area to ourselves although it was busy upstairs. Service was quick and friendly and our food was very tasty and fresh. We ordered a crevette salad, fish and chips and they were happy to do a small portion of fish and chips for my 6yo too. The prawns were larger than expected and really delicious with a nicely dressed salad and chips. We'll certainly return again!

We’ve been kayaking before and enjoyed it. But going once more has really strengthened our belief that it’s a great family activity.
