Spent a fantastic day out on the water in picturesque Poole Harbour.
The route taken is idyllic, with an informative commentary from the skippers and a stop off for lunch, along with an education in survival skill.
Thoroughly enjoyable and recommended.

Knowledgeable and experienced instructors who made the day not only fun but informative....would definitely recommend as a team building event, part of a stag/hen party, or just a fun day out for a large group of people!

Haven't had as much fun in ages. Was a bit nervous beforehand as never been canoeing and am on crutches. However the instructor was excellent, giving clear and easy to follow instructions as well as including everyone and working to their abilities! Would highly recommend it especially if you fancy something a bit different and a day filled with fun and laughter.

We are a team of researchers who decided to have a team building day in a big canoe. Two big canoes actually. The canoes were brilliant. We had two teams competing canoeing from Poole Harbour around Brownsea Island. We had a nice lunch break on a lovely, sandy beach after which we learnt some things about foraging. I had no previous experience in canoeing but it was great fun and I could recommend this to everyone. Before we saw the canoes we had some concerns about the stability of them but they were very-very stable. We all had great fun and enjoyed our team-building day immensely. I highly recommend this company!

We did a 'Big Canoe' trip as a team building day out with work. Had an amazing time, really brilliant, excellent instruction and fun for all - needless to say we did get wet with some water fights between teams!! There was loads to see in Poole Harbour and paddling around the islands with a beautiful spot for lunch on a secluded beach. Matt is an excellent guide and really knowledgable about the local area and wildlife. Would definitely recommend it.
