Difficulty level 1 of 5

We have graded all of the routes and trips we offer across our various locations on a scale of 1 to 5 (from easy to moderately difficult).

This experience is suitable for beginners and is rated 1/5 because the section of river you will be paddling on is wide and slow moving.

Prior canoeing experience is not required. You will be given a safety brief and an introduction on how to steer and propel your canoe.

If you can swim and follow instructions then you will be fine!

Take your dog on a canoe trip!

This event is co-hosted by local dog-walking expert Alice from AJ’s Pet Sitting Services.

Go off on your own or stay with the group and pull up your canoes half-way into your time on the water for the dogs to have a run around and socialise with the other dogs.

This is a lovely opportunity to meet other like-minded people and also take the opportunity to go for a dog walk before or after canoeing.

How does it work?

Meet us at our stand in the Quarry Park at 6pm, where we will have your canoe and equipment ready for you.

After a short safety brief, we will make sure you are feeling confident on the water, then you can go off and explore Shrewsbury with your dog!

Our canoes are suitable for 2 or 3 people plus 1 or 2 dogs – however, for larger breeds we recommend just one per canoe!
