You will get the best value for your money for a group of 8 (or multiples of 8) booking for a day.
An example day starts for you at 1000hrs and ends at 1600hrs. Your coach will be working for 2 hours before and 2 hours after.
Half days: Half days cost the same as full days, unless two are booked for the same day; e.g. a group of 16 want to do two activities on one day and swap over, i.e. 8 in the morning and 8 in the afternoon.
Suitable for you? Canoeing is an activity that is suitable for all ages. It provides a mode of transport that is ideal for observing and enjoying nature. Canoeing uses more coordination than strength so there will be no need for you to have anything other than a reasonable level of fitness. There are many skills that will be demonstrated and used throughout an activity/journey, some of which are canoeing skills while others are related to living with nature. A key objective for an activity/journey is to see how comfortable we can be and we shall be exploring skills that contribute to this. It is not necessary for you to have any water skills prior to an activity/journey. However, it is important that you will be able to be comfortable sitting in a canoe for from a few minutes up to an hour and a half at a time, as well as be calm in the event of an involuntary swim. We avoid getting wet as it is unnecessary, but unplanned swims do happen. If you have any doubts about this, you should reconsider the appropriateness of canoeing.

For a group of 8 we provide:
Jinaka Canoe Guides are now AALA (the Adventure Activities Licensing Authority) licensed; see details.

Groups and Teams
If you are considering canoeing as an activity for team building, etc., then send us a message. In common with many outdoor activities,
canoeing can be used to highlight skills useful in teamwork. If you
are really forward looking, why not think about a canoeing weekend or expedition in
the UK, Sweden or elsewhere. Loosing track of time is just one of the benefits. It will probably cost less than many formal team building courses, be a
lot more fun and more memorable.
Keeping dry and warm for as long as possible will increase the likelihood of you enjoying canoeing.
Canoeing Jinaka Canoe Guides: Your instructors/coaches are BCU Level 3 Open Canoe Qualified and can also coach kayak to BCU 2 Star.
