What do I need to bring?

Bring a set of spare clothes just in case you get a little bit wet. Please dress for the conditions of the day and layers. Wind and waterproofs may also be appropriate depending on the day’s conditions and sun cream if it’s a hot day. Wellies tend to be the best footwear as you can paddle out a little way to step in and out of your canoe whilst staying dry.
