Cambridge Canoe Hire

Cambridge Canoe Hire

Cambridge Canoe Hire

Canoeing played an important role in the history of many countries, including Canada and New Zealand. The words of Sarah Bolton's famed poem certainly hold true in Cambridge:

"Voyager upon life's sea, To yourself be true. And whatever your lot may be. Paddle your own canoe."

If you're looking for an alternative to punting, our canoes can be hired from our Granta Place Boatyard for trips out to the idyllic village of Grantchester. Explore and share the upper river Canadian-style on a journey with up to 3 of your friends.
