Cornonavirus Update - 13th May 2020
Canoe Hire Now Available - With the easing of Covid-19 restrictions we are pleased to announce that we are now able to offer some canoe hire activities. Please read below for further details.

TheCanoeMan - Socially Distanced Canoe Hire
Following the recent easing of lockdown restrictions we have redesigned one of our Canoe Hire Trails to bring them in-line with government guidelines, minimising the risks of coronavirus transmission. This trail launches from Buxton (just above Coltishall) and takes in an upper section of the River Bure, one of the most beautiful stretches of river in the county.

Covid-19 Precautions

This trip is based on a very remote stretches of river and is planned in such a way that you are unlikely to see another person, and even if you do the closest you would ever be is a canoes length (5 Metre.)
We have, however, put in place the following measures to ensure the safety of our customers:
  1. Each booking will be allocated an individual launch window of 30 minutes. This will ensure that you have no contact with anybody other than other members of your party If you have a preferred launch time please specifiy this in the Notes section of the booking form. We will do our best to accommodate your request and will be in touch shortly afterwards to confirm your launch time.
  2. All our boats, bouyancy aids, paddles and dry bags are disinfected/steam cleaned/quarantined inbetween each and every hire.
  3. Participants will be emailed a link to an instructional video which will demonstrate the correct fitting of bouyancy aids and give safety instructions. It will also demonstrate how to launch and paddle a canoe. This will allow participants to get afloat without having close contact with any of our staff.
  4. An emergency helpline allows participants to get assistance at any point in their canoe adventure.
  5. A hand disinfecting station is provided at the entrance to all launch points along with a supply of gloves.
Please be aware that in order to participate on one of our re-designed canoe hire routes you must:
  • Be paddling with a member or members of your household.
  • Be able to guarantee to clear the launch area within your allocated time slot.
  • Agree to call/text us in accordance with your instructions.
  • Confirm your understanding of the governments social distancing guidelines and that you will take all reasonable measures to ensure the guidelines are adhered to.
