Location

The River Dee is the perfect place for your first kayaking adventures. As it winds from its source in Snowdonia to Liverpool Bay, it navigates through great lakes, beautiful meandering flats, man-made waterfalls, and natural rapids from whitewater grade 1 to grade 4.

Our calm water activities take place in the city of Chester, where the River Dee flows past the city’s famous historic 1st-century Roman walls and meets the incoming tide from the sea.
