What to Expect

Our adventure commences at the historical Waulkmill Ferry, where you’ll be greeted by your guide and provided with all essential gear, including helmets and buoyancy aids.

After a short, informative session on paddling techniques and river reading, we’ll set off down the Tay.

As we navigate the waters, you’ll be treated to classic Perthshire views, the vibrant Perth city skyline, and a thrilling white water slide.

Anticipate a briefing before we tackle the exhilarating wave under Perth Bridge, followed by a relaxing paddle past the North Inch’s grandeur, leading us to our final destination at Willowgate.


The tour starts at the old Waulkmill Ferry, meanders through the heart of Perthshire, and concludes at Willowgate, which is just a short distance from Perth City Centre. The journey showcases the River Tay in all its glory, surrounded by the picturesque vistas of Kinnoull Hill and beyond.

If using Sat Nav/ your phone to get you there, the easiest thing is to put in is Waulkmill Ferry Crossing East, this gets you to exactly where you need to be. Make sure you don’t accidentally end up on the wrong side of the river at Waulkmill Ferry West!

If not using a Sat Nav, head past Scone Palace on the A93, turning left onto Stormontfield Road, keep going along past Perth Race Course and take the 3rd left where Stromontfield Road forks into Cambusmicheal Road. Once you’ve taken this left turn there is a gravel/dirt track immediately on the left, this is where we’ll meet.

There is only room for around 3-4 cars along here so if you’ve booked in a group please consider coming in one car. You will need to have arranged a way to get from Willowgate back to your car after the tour. Most people leave a car at both ends.


This tour is beginner-friendly. No prior kayaking or British Canoe Qualification is needed, just a spirit ready for fun and a touch of adventure on the water. You must be aged 14 or over to participate.
