Canoeing in the New Forest

Located on the banks of the tidal & privately owned Beaulieu River, our canoeing base offers a wonderful location to explore. Take the River up or down stream, drift on tidal currents or explore hidden creeks. Whether it’s your first time in a canoe or you’ve been before, our expert guides will tailor your experience perfectly.

Exploring since 2003, you’ll benefit from our 14 years of guiding people on the Beaulieu waters.  There’s a range of canoeing sessions to choose from, all possible through our exclusive license to canoe on this stunning Nature Reserve.  You’ll be in Open ‘Canadian Style’ Canoes, so you will feel stable & safe, as you learn & explore.

The perfect way to get young kids out on the water. Join our family canoe trips for a fantastic 90-minute session on the stunning Beaulieu River. Learn the basics from expert guides and head out into the Nature Reserve.  Lots of wildlife to spot, areas to explore & fun to be had.  Special prices for families.    






New for 2017 – The Beaulieu Canoe Explorer experience is only for those of 12 years and over. Expect to cover good distance on this extended trip through the Beaulieu Nature Reserve.  From Bailey’s Hard to Buckler’s Hard and beyond, the Canoe Explorer gives you the option to go further than on our past tours.

Canoeing – Winter Paddling

November – February

The water may be cold but the views are stunning when paddling along The Beaulieu River on a crisp Winter’s day. So wrap up warm and get out on the water as part of one of our Winter Paddling sessions. Plus, with our great value winter paddle price, you really have no excuse!



Per person



Canoeing is always a special activity; however, at some times of year it’s nice to add a special twist. From seasonal events like our Santa Paddles and Spooky Tours, to the group favourites like our Paddle to the Pub. Take a look at what’s coming up and book, or let us know if you’re a group wanting a bespoke activity.

Groups can book sole use sessions of any of the Canoeing experiences we offer.  We also provide longer trips and can tailor paddles for special interest groups.  We can even offer trips on other Hampshire and Dorset Rivers, so let us know if your group want something special.

The relaxed atmosphere created by Jake was lovely and we all loved our time on the water with the Jellyfish touching being a highlight for the kids. We would highly recommend using this very organized company. -Abby H
