Canoeing in Dorset – Explorer Day

Open Canoeing in Dorset offers us the opportunity to paddle around beautiful harbours and explore the picturesque River Stour or Frome. On this trip you’ll undertake a journey where there will be many opportunities for testing your open canoeing skills and receiving some coaching to improve your paddling. Most days are based around the South West Dorset area (Poole/Christchurch area), your coach will be in touch the week beforehand with a more accurate starting location when they have a better idea on the weather for the day.

We do recommend that you have some experience (2.5 hour canoeing trip or a discover canoeing day) as a full day can be a lot of activity for the complete beginner. If you are very confident and comfortable in canoes but with to discuss the suitability of these days, please get in touch to discuss the suitability of these days for you.
