Open Canoe Trips, Training and Expeditions
“The first thing to learn about boating is Love.
You can buy all the fancy gear you like, but if you take a boat that you don’t love and respect on the water she’ll drop you in just as sure as there’s water underneath. Love her and respect her and she keep you afloat, carry your home and make your journey special.”
Canoeing can be a very simple life, steeped in tradition, where you and nature meet. Just you, the paddle and the canoe, to explore the natural surroundings. Forget the stress and 9-5 mentality of your day job, relax, slow down and enjoy this activity. You don’t need brute force, learn to use leverage and timing. Paddle solo or as part of a duo to share the experience of tranquility. Feel yourself move with the current, traveling the way of our ancestors, gliding over the water underneath.
Im happy to take you from your first splashes and dunks, to multi day wilderness journeys, establishing camps in isolated areas and islands. Travelling on land and water, learning to paddle, pole, sail and raft, to carrying yourself over lochs, rivers and white water.
I will tailor make the activity to you.
Groups sizes can be up to 8 people, but as a small group, I can offer more personal instruction, and you will have more chance of seeing the wildlife.
You don’t need any previous experience, just plenty of enthusiasm and an appreciation of skill and nature!
With my experience and qualifictaions I will develop your abilities and guide you throughout your fantastic life enhancing experience.
