River Levels

The river activities we provide depend very much on the local river levels and the experience of the canoeist or kayaker.  During our main March to November season, river levels are normally at a reasonable level which fluctuates slightly from rain upstream, during these months we aim to run with full operation where ever possible.  Please use the gauge on the left to check the current river levels and contact us the day before your activity to check all river activities are running.
