Lower Tamar Canoe Journey

This is a water-based journey involving a day of exploration of parts of the beautiful River Tamar between Calstock and Saltash.  We will follow the 19th Century trade-route to Plymouth, meandering through the mining and market garden industries that line the banks of the Tamar in East Cornwall. 

River Tamar Map

Tide dependent, we embark in our rafted canoes upon the first stage of our trip from Calstock following the River Tamar.  Here we pass under the impressive rail bridge and paddle past Cotehele and on towards one of the smallest chapels in Cornwall.

Down past expansive reed beds and meandering features we flow past small communities before arriving at Saltash's distinctive bridges.

Watertight barrels are provided for your lunch and drinks which can be enjoyed in the vicinity of Pentillie Estate.
