Sit on top kayak hire on the River Dart

Stoke Gabriel Kayak Academy and canoe hire is the new venture from Tom Morris formally of Totnes Kayaks in Totnes. We have supplied a brand new fleet of Islander Calypso sit on tops, Wilderness Systems T130 double sit on top kayaks with Palm Quest pfd's and paddles. The Calypso is a brand new model from Islander, made with love at Dagger Europe's factory in Clevedon, N. Somerset. A very stable and easy paddling sit on top which is perfect for the River Dart estuary hire location. In the back ground you can see the Mill pond and jetty of the small harbor which is a lovely place to start your paddle. With a few hours to spare you can visit the Sharpham estate with its vine yards and cafe where they serve cream teas and the Sharpham Brie cheese. Bow creek is just across the river and has a great pub and the village of Dittisham is just a short way down stream. A full day will get you to Totnes or Dartmouth depending on the tides.

Summer evenings will bring on the BBq supplied by the River shack, sounds good to us.
