"Superb family adventure on the River Torridge and Yeo in the late afternoon and evening.(Dependent on tides) Paul was a wonderful teacher and host and after a short tutorial we were off canoeing. Basically 2 hours upstream and back within beautiful surroundings. We had a an absolute blast and would look to book again the next time we are in the area."

"I was a little nervous to try the canoe experience. The weather hasn't been particularly wonderful lately but I had heard that this particular canoe experience was one of the best. It was an all day experience that I shared with my brother. We started early and was given a pack lunch. We also brought a recommended change of clothes too. Everything gets put in a dry bag. We launched two canoes close to Bideford. The river Torridge is a tidal river so everything was planned brilliantly by Paul the instructor. We would canoe up with the tide and return when the tide ebbs. The weather couldn't have been better. The sun was out the whole day with blue sky! We didn't feel cold. We rowed through a couple of bridges; where spectatators waved and greeted us. We rowed all the way up to Weare Giffard - that took us 3 hours but honestly it felt a lot less. We had our sandwiches overlooking a nice house and the Weare Giffard Hall. We saw all sorts of wild life along and in the river; swans, geese, ducks, seagulls,curlews,sandpipers and even a stoat swimming across the river. The best duck I saw was a Mandarin duck... It was so beautiful. There was also an egret and a couple of cormorants and a heron flying off in the opposite direction. We had a great day. Paul is a great observer and instructor. Go for a canoe experience, you won't regret it."

"Paul is an excellent teacher! With no experience of canoeing whatsoever, I happened to try canoeing with him. It was a great experience and a lot of learning. He kept on giving us lessons throughout the session which was quite helpful. He also has a few tricks up his sleeve to make your session a lot of fun. The gear was top class and professional. Definitely recommend Bude Canoe Experience!"

"I went on the Bude Canoe Experience with my 9 year old son and 13 year old daughter. I have to say I would highly recommend it. The owner Paul Clark injected the afternoon with energy, information and laughter. It was a really bonding experience and a good workout! We spotted fish jumping out of the water, and plenty of other wildlife along the way. It was a real swallows and amazons experience which we would all do again like a shot. Thanks Paul. Best wishes, The MacLennans."
