Life happens, fact; We all start off wanting this or that, then something crops up and we end up doing something entirely different, then at a later date you think back and say to yourself, I want to go canoeing/kayaking again, but need a little help (shove/seal launch) towards getting back in a boat.
Well, whatever, we don't really care what the reason is/was, but since you're here reading this, we can assume it's because you want to get back in a boat again and either refresh what you had or learn new skills.

You'll find details more details of what we do and where in the "Paddling section".
