Self guided paddling packages:

These are paddling trips on the Barrington River without a guide, you set your own course and paddle at your own pace. You leave your vehicle at our office and we take you to the river drop-off point, then we come and collect you later at the the pick-up point further downstream. Your package includes transport, boat, paddle, spray deck, helmet and buoyancy vest.

The water levels in the Barrington River determine our paddling tour departures so we never complain about rain events, even if there’s been a little too much (because then we get to deploy our rubber rafts instead, which are great fun!). Daily updates of the Barrington River level at Rocky Crossing are shown on the home page.
