Frequently Asked Questions

A Katakanu is like two narrow canoes strapped together. It is similar to a canoe but much more stable and buoyant, designed to comfortably seat up to six people. Its design minimises the risk of tipping, making it ideal for families, beginners, or those looking for a relaxed paddling experience on calm waters.

No, prior paddling experience is not necessary. Our tours are designed to accommodate all skill levels, including complete beginners. Our experienced instructors provide comprehensive safety briefings and paddling instructions before setting off, ensuring everyone feels confident and secure on the water.

The Katakanu tour is family-friendly and suitable for all ages. Children under 5 years old can join for free but must be accompanied by an adult on the same Katakanu. Participants under 18 must have an adult present on the tour. We ensure that safety measures are in place for paddlers of all ages. We have had babies join with parents who are comfortable. 

We recommend the 2-hour tour. The 1-hour tour is perfect for those who want a quick and enjoyable paddle, focusing on the scenic views and a brief introduction to the river’s ecosystem.

The 2-hour tour offers a more immersive experience, allowing more time for wildlife spotting, exploring further along the River Avon, and learning about the local area from our knowledgeable guides.

Participants should wear comfortable, quick-drying clothing that’s appropriate for the weather and water conditions. Footwear should be secure and suitable for getting wet. We also recommend bringing sunscreen, a hat, and sunglasses for protection against the sun, as well as a towel and a change of clothes for after the tour. Personal items like cameras and phones should be protected in a waterproof case.

We closely monitor weather conditions and will contact participants if the tour needs to be rescheduled due to safety concerns like high winds or lightning. We aim to provide advance notice whenever possible and will offer alternative dates or refunds according to our cancellation policy.

Yes, bringing your own food and drinks is encouraged, especially for the longer 2-hour tour. We advise packing light refreshments and water. Please be mindful of the environment and ensure all rubbish is taken with you off the boat to dispose of properly after the tour.

The tour starts and ends at The Boathouse in Bath. This location not only provides a scenic starting point but also offers facilities like parking, restrooms, and a place to relax and eat. Participants can use their 15% discount voucher at The Boathouse for meals and drinks after the tour.
