Our canoe trail is tidal so is not operational at low tide.


There needs to be at least 0.5m of water at low tide for canoes to clear the bottom. If you are unable to access this website phone Reception on 02 49516466 to check tides.

Canoeing is also a fun activity for a group – school groups (over 10 years), OOSH groups or businesses can book our canoes for a great team-building experience.
