Go Paddling aim to get more people out onto the water.  Our Guided Tours are the ideal escape into the beautiful Stodmarsh Nature Reserve and a chance to paddle in a new and exciting way, whether you're new to paddling or an experienced paddler.

You will be led by our friendly and experienced coaches who will share their knowledge of the local area, wildlife and passion for paddling.

This is a unique opportunity to see and hear the bird life of the River Stour in a different way. 


Or join us for our Sea Kayaking Seal Safari Adventure across Pegwell Bay where you will be met with a new challenge amongst an abundance of wildlife.


Each tour covers 5 miles of beautiful river from Fordwich to Grove Ferry and usually takes up to 3 hours. Everyone is welcome with no age limits or experience required, as coaches will be on hand to help, and all canoeing equipment will be provided. Transport back to Fordwich is also available.

Booking is available just above on the right hand side of this page and once you have booked you will be sent an email with details of your tour, suitable clothing and how to meet us to begin.
