Calvert Trust Exmoor has the exclusive use of the surface of Wistlandpound Reservoir. So each year between spring and autumn (weather dependent) we add canoeing to the programme, giving us a safe, controlled and warmer environment for being out on the water.
Our specialist equipment allows everyone to get out on the water, to enjoy the views, the peacefulness, and some fun games.
Hoists and an innovative accessible pontoon provide access for wheelchair users. We also use a range of adaptive seating types.
The canoes are tandem for extra stability, making the activity easy and straightforward for a real sense of freedom.
Canoeing has a broad range of positive effects, from offering a sensory experience to improving motor skills to learning and developing technical skills.
We hold the British Canoeing Quality Mark and offer instructors undertake British Canoeing courses.
