Katakanuing is a great way for a group to go for a paddle trek along a river or waterway. These catamaran style paddle craft are very stable, allowing you to stay high and dry while paddling. Each Katakanu (pronounced cat-a-canoe) holds up to 6 people – 3 on each side – with enough space across the middle for your back packs and provisions. Everyone gets a paddle and can take an active part in propelling the boat through the water. A very accessible craft for all ages and abilities. It’s cool, it’s fast and it’s fun.
Our fabulous 2 hour trip through the Norfolk Broads sets out from Fairhaven Woodland Gardens where you will be guided by one of our paddlesport leaders, learning to paddle together as a team, as you head from South Walsham Broad towards St Benets Abbey.
If good progress is made then we hope there will be time to stop off at the historical St Benets Abbey but this is dependant on conditions and paddle ability. Along the route, keep a watchful eye out for some of our local residents such as swans, kingfishers, herons, cormorants, ducks, woodpeckers, geese, dragonflies, damselflies, falcons and even a rather shy pair of otters.
The tour costs £98.00 per boat (just £16.30 per person for a group of 6) and includes your entry ticket to Fairhaven Woodland Gardens and Waterways.
