7½ Mile Route
(2½ – 3½ hours)
Our mega-sup hire takes you on a scenic 7½ mile route on the River Severn. We provide transport (minibus or taxi) for you from our Little Green Kiosk in the Wharfage car park (TF8 7NH) to your starting point. After we drop you off with all the necessary equipment, you can then enjoy paddling your way back to us in Ironbridge. Take in the gorgeous scenery along the way and look out for an abundance of wildlife including kingfishers, wagtails and deer to experience an idyllic trip. Also remember to pack your food and soft drinks as you’ll also have time to enjoy a bite to eat as you float along on the board.
Please park in Dale End pay and display car park (TF8 7BS) and walk across to the Wharfage car park where we meet at 10am at our Little Green Kiosk (ready for a 10.15am departure). If you are running late please call us. As we may have other customers waiting to be transported, if you arrive late, we cannot guarantee that your trip will go ahead.
We will fit you with a buoyancy aid, paddle, helmet and dry bag and finish off the paperwork. After a short safety briefing, there is a 10-15 minute trip to the start point where you are on the water for your day on the River Severn.
Please wear appropriate outdoor weather clothing (shorts, fitness gear or leggings) or your own wetsuit with sensible wet suit shoes/trainers for the river. Furthermore, we also recommend you bring a change of clothing and towel for the end of the trip. There are public toilets available in the car park where we are based to change. Children can participate from the age of 10.
