We thoroughly enjoyed our time on the river. Daisy was not only an excellent canoe instructor but full of information on the local area – especially the array of birds and wildlife. Very much enjoyed the creeks – a lovely and refreshing day out!

Guided canoeing during half term. Daisy and Johnny were great guides, relaxed, professional & supportive. The tour down the river was beautiful with lots to learn about. We had a fabulous turn & will do it again next time we are in the New Forest.
