On arrival we will do a capability test to make sure you are safe to get on to the water. This is inline with our company policy and our COVID-19 precautions. If you arrive for this hire session, never having had a session before, we won't be able to let you on to the water. Please think before you book as we want to make sure you have a safe experience!
All hire needs to be booked in advance.
The stretch of river in either direction from the park offers lovely scenery full of wildlife.
You are welcome to paddle around with the group on the water if you feel safer.
Arriving on site:
As you drive over the small humpback bridge, take the next right to Avon Valley Farm before you enter the Avon Valley Adventure & Wildlife Park. Follow this road, over a couple of speed bumps and turn left, following the signs where you will arrive at our car park. Please head to the reception to book in.

Customer Notice: You will be on the River Avon (between Bath and Bristol), which is home to various wildlife up and down the river. Like any other open-water source, please do your best not to ingest the water as there is a small risk that you could catch something as the river is accessed by the local wildlife. Should you feel ill after the session, please let us know asap so we can keep track of your progress. Should it worsen, please see your local GP and let them know you have been playing in the river so they can perform the correct medical checks.
