What's on offer at our base

Exeter has been our base now for over 10 years and is still our primary location. Our base on the Exeter Quay is a great  place to start your canoe hire right in the heart of exeter. You can explore the quayside for a couple of hours or head to turf locks for a full day out travelling up the beautiful River Exe and taking in the sights of Topsham.

There is plenty of wildlife to see along the way. If you are incredibly lucky you may come across a seal or two!

The meeting point is just opposite from Compass Quay, Maritime Court EX2 8GW on the left hand side inbetween the sailing boats on the slipway.

Parking is available for £3 all day at the overflow car park at the back of Michael Browning Way. It is only a 2 min walk to our base from here.


We can cater for any corporate events, birthdays, hen and stag do's or if you simply want to hire canoes for 2 to 4 people, kayaks, single and double and paddleboards including our mega SUP which can take up to 10 people! What ever the occasion we've got you covered!

Friday evening social paddles

Our famous Friday evening paddles start at 6pm on the slipway and are a huge hit with anyone that's paddled with us before. We paddle up to double locks pub, do some slackening for those that want to, have a drink and then paddle back to our base. For those that want to join us we go and have a pizza and pint afterwards.
