Family Friendly Kayak and Canoe Hire
Kayaks, Sit-on-Tops and Open Canoes
Our Kayaks and Canoes are available for hire for use on the River Severn in the
Shrewsbury area for a half day or full day.
We are hiring from Frankwell canoe ramp in Shrewsbury, from there you can discover the river upstream into the countryside looking out for wildlife including sand martins and kingfishers. Take a picnic and pullover onto a beach for a relaxing break. Paddle back with the flow returning from where you started your trip. If you have enough time go down stream around the quarry and around the Shrewsbury river loop before paddling back to the start point.
We have a variety of boats to choose from and our
friendly and approachable staff will be on hand to advise you and to make sure you
have the kit you need.
Single Kayaks are paddled using a double blade. We have a choice from
quick turning, straight running to the super stable
Sit-on-tops are paddled using a double blade. Fun super stable craft
Open Canoes are paddled using a single blade. Our canoes are fitted out for 2 people but
with the option to add an additional centre seat which is very useful for families with
young children. Two canoes can be rafted together for even more security with young children
Due to safety reasons we do not hire to lone paddlers and operate a minimum group of two.
We do not hire to under 21s. Children and young adults need to be part of a family group.
