Time to paddle (responsibly)
Disclaimer: This post is late because we’ve been out boating.
We’re stoked that we’re able to get out on the water and really keen to see as many people enjoying the rivers, lakes and lochs safely now that government guidelines are allowing us to get back to paddling.
Providers across the UK are starting to offer coaching and guiding within government guidelines. Whether you want to up your skills, get shown around some stunning scnery or have your first paddling experience, these guys will give you an awesome time on the water. Check out their websites and share them with friends and family too. In the spirit of staying local, let’s keep our tourism local and support these companies as they open up again after months of watching the rain fall.
If you’re a provider, or know of a provider who would like to be on this list, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Most sessions are delivered by owner Lyle Smith and utilising trusted friends who are highly qualified coaches if you are looking for a time when Lyle is not available.http://graniteadventures.co.uk/
At SINGING PADDLES we offer a variety of guided canoe tours mainly on the waterways of South Devon. Sometimes we travel further afield for white water and extended overnight camping tours.https://singingpaddles.co.uk/
We use stable canoes that can be easily paddled by 2 people, with extra seats for a family and sometimes even a dog. Dogs come free. Anyone can paddle; we have canoed with people in their late 80’s and children as young as 6 months old. We travel at a leisurely pace stopping occasionally to have a look at the abundant wildlife of the area. On some trips we stop at a deserted beach to light fires, brew up and watch the world go by. On all trips we laugh and on some trips people sing.
