Big Canoeing

Our unique 13-person Big Canoes are the perfect vessel for exploring Poole Harbour.

With no prior paddling experience required teams can venture far further than a traditional Canoe or Kayak experience may offer. Helmed by our instructors but powered by the team, heading out as a solo boat or flotilla of many, your group can reach some of the most tranquil spots within the harbour.

We can journey up to the RSPB nature reserve at Arne, around Green (a designated SSSI) and Furzy Islands, over to the well know and largest of the harbours island Brownsea, or even across to Sandbanks. Whatever the wind and tidal conditions on the day a fun and engaging route will be planned.

The boats are extremely stable and can offer a relatively dry experience if you wish to experience the joys of being on the water but maybe not in it! This also allows for year-round water-based activities.
