Advisory Notes
Booking essential. Elveys-Canoe is not based by the river so all hire needs to be pre-booked by phone or email in advance and boats delivered to you at the riverside at a pre-arranged time. Please note they do not provide passenger transport so you will need to make your own arrangements if you require this for any one way trips. Elveys-Canoe suggests a minimum age of 6 years, this is due to ensuring they have the correct sized equipment for younger children. Contact them for more details if you have children younger than 6 years.

Additional Notes
Prices include all equipment (buoyancy aids/paddles/optional helmets/dry containers) plus delivery and
collection of boats to and from the start and finishing points. All boats are licensed for use on the river.
