Where to Paddle

Exeter Shipping Canal & The River Exe

We are based at the very beginning of the Exeter Shipping canal. The canal is a great place to get started, with no current and lots of easy access points. Within a few minutes of paddling, you get outside the city and into natural surroundings full of wildlife. There are also a series of “loops” you can try, which venture onto the River Exe.
