From Friday 2 April 2021 I am pleased to bring Canoe Hire back on the River Great Ouse at Godmanchester, safely and in line with UK Government advice. 




What I am doing differently 
  • Asking visitors to book hire slots in advance. 

  • Thoroughly sanitising all equipment (boats, paddles and life jackets) before and after each use.   

  • Buoyancy aids are provided but considering COVID, these are optional.   

  • Maintaining a 2 metre distance while conducting hire handover.

  • Reduced fleet of boats to limit numbers. 


Requirements of Customers 
  • Only canoe with members of your own household. 

  • Bring your own hand sanitiser for the hire period.   

  • You are encouraged to clean/sanitise your hands before and after hire.  (Hand sanitiser will be available).  

  • Be confidently mobile as I will have to adapt how I hold the canoe to get you on and off.  I will not be able to offer you a supporting arm.  

  • Do NOT to participate if you / anyone in your household have been infected or displayed any coronavirus symptoms or have been in contact with anyone that has the virus, within the last 14 days. 

  • Do NOT to participate if you / anyone in your household is deemed in the vulnerable categories as defined in the current UK Government advice. 

  • Please refrain from eating in the boats.
