The Exe Circuit

The Waters around AS Watersports offer a fantastic variety of Environments for paddling.

With in half an hours paddling from the shop you have three weirs, which, depending on levels, can be a great intro to whitewater or the best play feature in the South West.

Further down we hit the tidal section of the river. This section is super quiet and very attractive and packed with plenty of wildlife. A fantastic spot for Sea kayaks, Sit On Kayaks, Touring Kayaks and Open Canoes.

Running alongside the river there is the seven miles of flat sheltered water of the Exe canal, with easy access, good shelter, no currents this is an ideal learning ground.

The Exe Circuit.

Using the river and tide to flow down the Estuary and the canal to work your way back up is a fantastic round circuit bypassing all the weirs.

We offer this as a day trip course for £40 running through the year. We provide all the equipment our inhouse experienced instructor has all the local knowledge to show you the routes, access points as well as packing in loads of top tips to make you a better paddler.

Last night our inhouse Instructor Liam Kirkham and Ewart Aylward took advantage of whats on there Doorstep. Fantatsic paddling with good sightings of Cormorant, Herons, Little Egrets and Kingfisher. Here are some photos to wet your appetite!
