WE ARE OPEN!
The hiring of Canoes, Kayaks and SUPs is now permissable following some social distancing and hygiene rules.
We’ve had to make a few changes in order to operate safely
Please Note – We are launching from the slipway on St Peter’s Street until Bisham Abbey Site is re-opened
OUR COVID-19 Statement
We have taken advice from British Canoeing , and our Insurers and we are able to rent our Canoes, Kayaks and SUPs on the Thames given the current advice from the authorities.
At the moment, our Bisham base is not open, so we are launching for ‘Bisham day hire’ at the public slipway in Marlow on St Peter’s Street. Customers will need to find parking in the town nearby. (We are hoping that this will change any day now when the Bisham Abbey site re-opens).
We are asking Canadian Canoe and Double Kayak customers to be from the same household.
For SUPs and Single Kayaks, bookings for same household or up to two people from different households.
If people want to go in larger groups, then please make separate bookings and maintain the social distancing rules on the water.
We ask all customers to follow the latest advice from the Government regarding lockdown measures
We have a fully Risk-Assessed hygiene program in place to keep our kit clean and some measures in place to protect customers and staff during handover and safety briefings.
We advise all customers to bring drinks and snacks/food in sealed bags as the usual conveniences are shut – (Although the convenience store in Hurley is open).
Our customers do not need to wear gloves, face masks or PPE equipment whilst using our kit
Customers will be advised to portage (carry) boats across the locks – nothing unusual there for us!
Hirers will be required to read and sign in addition to our Standard Hirer Terms, our additional COVID-19 TERMS prior to hire.
We look forward to seeing you in the fresh air soon!
