Health And Safety Guidelines, Rules And Regulations
At certain times and by prior arrangement, we can provide a river guide to accompany you on your trip. Please note this service is only available by prior arrangement, and not something you can add at the time of your arrival.
Dogs are welcome. However under no circumstances are they to be leashed in the canoe.
Please note that there is no safety cover on the river as most trips advertised are self-guided. However, safety cover is in place if the trip is guided. Additionally we are contactable at all times to effect or organise a rescue. Call: 01600 890470.
Please be aware that mobile phone coverage on the river is minimal for a lot of the major networks. Hot spots are Kerne Bridge, Lower Lydbrook, Symonds Yat Rock and the lower sections of the Wye Valley.
Loose lightweight clothing. Footwear – trainers, aquaboots or full sandals. (Do not wear wellington boots, flip flops or jeans). Please be aware when the sun is out it will reflect off the water making it very hot , so please dress accordingly to minimise risk of heat stroke and sunburn. Also weather conditions can change very quickly on your journey. We always recommend that you bring a full change of clothes.
Fluids, snacks or picnic, especially if you are not planning to stop off at a pub en-route.
High factor sunscreen is highly recommended.
Expensive jewellery. Watches, cameras, video cameras etc if not waterproof. We cannot be held responsible for any loss or damage to any of your effects.
As per the countryside code please protect the countryside and wildlife by not leaving rubbish on the river banks or by dropping it in the river. Bring it back with you and we will dispose of it for you.
