Sorry, this event has passed

Join us for a magical evening on the River Dart! The evening paddle by canoe is an opportunity to slow down, switch gear and experience the natural world on the water as it moves from day to night. The fading light... bird-sound, silence, bats, moonlight, darkness. We set off in the daylight and paddle our canoes for an hour or so upstream. Pitching up on the river bank, we'll cook some burgers over the fire, whilst we are entertained by a river tale or two from our on-board story-teller. We paddle back as night falls to the sound of the owls, and only our night vision to guide us. No previous canoeing experience required.

TIMES:Trips generally run from 6pm-10pm but may vary slightly depending on time of year.

START/FINISH POINT: KEVICC School boat shed - TQ95LA. Directions to boat shed: Park in Swallowfields TQ9 5LA. Walk to bottom of street and turn right down tarmac track, through 5 bar gate and keep walking about another 100 metres to the shed.
