People canoeing on river


Due to on-going planning permission issues, availability is only for a limited number of Canadian canoes, and specifically around high tide (a time which varies each day).

Kayaks, paddleboards or any other craft are not currently available but please keep referring to the website for updates.

We hope this situation resolves itself soon and we can get back to offering a normal service, and we are very sorry for the inconvenience this has caused our customers.

Bookings must be made in advance by phone (only). Please telephone 07979517186. If you don't get an answer, please keep trying.

People cannot launch their own canoes, kayaks or paddleboards at Iken Canoe whether they are hiring from us or not, due to insurance protocols. Iken Cliff is not a good place for own kayak/SUP launch generally, due to accessibility across the mudflats and private foreshore.
