Paying adult required
6 hrs Session
Blue Lagoon Water Park

A paddle in your hand, lunch in the outdoors, and the chance to explore the only inland area of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park - our River Adventure is an unforgettable experience that's ideal for a break in the outdoors.

Ideal for a family day out or as a group, we'll be taking you off-resort for an all-day adventure that combines a canoe trip and bushcraft skills, with the chance to explore this enchanting waterway. Led by a qualified instructor, you will paddle canoes along one of our designated river routes while enjoying the beautiful wildlife and scenic surroundings. Our guides will give you tips on your paddle techniques, as well as filling you in on some of the history and facts about the area as you make your way along the water.

At lunchtime, you'll stop riverside for lunch and a campfire, where you will learn bushcraft skills and enjoy warm drinks and toasted marshmallows. After refuelling, it will be back to the canoes for another exciting paddling session, before heading back home to Bluestone with a smile on your face!

Just a short drive from Bluestone, the Cleddau is a breath-taking waterway bursting with wildlife and incredible scenery. Linking Haverfordwest with Carew, East Williamston, Blackpool Mill, Pembroke Dock, and Milford Haven, the Cleddau meanders through the middle of the county and is encased by high wooded banks that keep the river quiet and tranquil.

As part of the National Park, and as a Site of Special Scientific Interest and Special Area of Conservation, the river and its banks are protected areas and it's easy to believe you've slipped into another world as you enjoy a relaxing paddle. Our team knows the river well so you'll be in good hands. We have a choice of incredible routes to take you on and can fit the day around your needs and abilities to make sure everyone gets the best out of your trip.
