On an incoming tide we depart Conwy, Leaving the Majestic Castle to await our return. The tide will help push us inland to enjoy the stunning views of the Snowdonian mountains before us.
After the wide estuary sections, the river narrows as it starts to wind through open farmland.Past river side settlement, under bridges, old abandoned wharves and jetties of bygone river transport systems. Interesting paddle for the inquisitive. After a river side picnic lunch we return being carried on a falling tide.
If you are a competent paddler this is an easy paddle, but if your new to river paddling its worth taking a guide with you to explain river position and how to control your board in a flow. You need to be able to paddle and control your board on demand. But once mastered this is an enjoyable low risk leisure paddle.
Our guide carries a VHF radio, Mobile telephone, First Aid pack, extra food, water and is full of local knowledge. They are there to ensure you and your group have an enjoyable safe day on the river.
