“Go Canoeing hosted our family’s stag, and I must admit I had the best weekend. The event was well organized, the route was great, and the overnight wood camp was spectacular. I would highly recommend the company to even the non-outdoor people.”

Frequently Asked Questions

    Expand/Close
  • Is canoeing safe for children?

    Yes; however, we recommend a sit-on-top canoe or kayak as it will help you keep an eye on them. We recommend you only take children older than four years for watersports. At that age, they can understand and follow directives.

  • Is paddling safe?

    Paddling is only as safe as you would like it to be. With the right equipment and following instructions to the letter, it can be a low-risk outdoor sport. Make sure you have your buoyancy aid on. If paddling on rough water, consider putting on a helmet.

  • How can I differentiate a canoe from a kayak?

    Most people can’t tell the difference because all kayaks are considered canoes, but not all canoes are kayaks. A canoe is a type of boat which you can sit or kneel on and paddle using a single-bladed paddle. On the other hand, a kayak is a type of canoe where you can only sit and paddle using a double-bladed paddle.

  • Is canoeing an expensive sport?

    Similar to most sports, canoeing is only expensive if you make it. When starting, you will find the need to borrow any equipment that you may need from canoeing or sports centers. Along the way, you will realize you need more gear of your own.
    While the price of these gears will seem shocking and expensive at first, starter equipment are way cheaper than expert equipment.

  • What if I am late for my canoeing trip?

    Arriving late means you might need to take an alternative trip.
