Canoe Tamar

Paul Turner and Kate Blake who run Canoe Tamar, are both fully qualified British Canoe Union coaches and expedition leaders. Paul has worked in the outdoor adventure business for 10 years, he has a wide range of experience working with adults and children.

Kate has worked both locally and overseas in outdoor centres, she has enormous experience working with more vulnerable people in adventurous contexts. Paul and Kate are local to the Tamar Valley and have an ever growing knowledge of its history and wildlife.

They offer two regular journeys and a shorter evening trip. The first journey takes place between the ancient quays of Morwellham and Cotehele. You will be on the water between two and a half and three hours and a short break will be taken at Calstock.

The second regular journey starts and finishes at Morwellham Quay. You will paddle up river through steeply sloping woods and water meadows as far as Weir Head - the upper limit of the tidal Tamar - and then paddle back down with the changing tide.

Paul and Kate will kit you out with everything you need; a buoyancy aid, a paddle and waterproof bag (that floats) in which to keep your camera, binoculars and car keys. There will be a safety briefing before you start off. Then you will be helped into a canoe and given advice and assistance should you need it.

Everyone is welcome from age about 3 years upwards, there is no upper age limit. You may be coming alone or as part of a group or family. Well behaved dogs are very welcome too! You do not need to be particularly fit or energetic as we travel with the tide. Our trips are suitable for all ages and stages of life.

On their website you will find a full list of dates and times for the trips
