Can we paddle anywhere?
In the UK, you need a license to paddle in most of the waterways, rivers, lakes, etc.
BCU membership (Canoe England, Canoe Wales, Scotland Canoe Association and the Canoe Association of Northern Ireland) includes a license to paddle on 5000km of Britain's waterways and canals.

Not all inland water is open to canoeists, some are privately owned or is bounded by land which is private, so do check beforehand. See Useful Websites page.

We have a limited selection of used folding kayaks in varying conditions. Detailed photos available on request. Spare parts and accessories for most of the recent kayaks are still easily obtainable. Accessories for older model kayaks can be custom made on request and spares can be sourced.

Unless stated, most of the kayaks listed here are 'vintage' model kayaks with their original skins. Replacement skins can still be made on request, now or in the future. Frames in reasonably good condition, with spares for common models still obtainable.

We do have stock on hand of spares and frame pieces for the British Tyne SD17 (Sports Double 17ft 2in). Spares for Kleppers are sourced on request. See 'Spare Parts' section on this site

We do offer a referral service where we will advertise your kayak here on a commission basis. We check and take detailed photos of your boat and store them in a secure facility. We promote your boat on various media and space permitting, at some outdoor shows. On request from interested buyers, we demo them. Contact us for details.
