Canoeing

New for 2018!

We are thrilled to be able to offer Canoeing as an activity to Tackt-Isle this year. Our Canoes are spacious, three person canoes with one large seat and two smaller seats. There is plenty of room for extra luggage so you can take them for an adventure around the harbour or to a sheltered bay.

Our Canoes are available to hire but we also offer sessions with qualified instructors to show you the ropes.
