Beccles Canoe, Kayak, Paddleboard (SUP) & Row Boat Hire


The Wonderful
Waveney

Beccles - River Waveney (Return Trip)

Run in conjunction with Beccles Lido, TheCanoeMan Beccles is less than half a mile from the town centre. And now for 2021 - the addition of kayak and paddleboard hire to go alongside our popular canoe hire, allowing everyone to explore the wonders of the Waveney.

Beccles is a beautiful market town nestling on the banks of the River Waveney, close to the Norfolk/Suffolk border. The river here is lovely and has a wide range of wildlife to be seen - from kingfishers to otters.

TheCanoeMan Beccles is on one of the most attractive, unspoilt stretches of the Waveney. Our suggested route takes you paddling upstream towards the riverside pub, The Locks at Geldeston which is approximately 1.5 hours away, in your canoe, kayak or paddleboard, meaning that you can make a day of it with our Full Day hire option. The stretch of the river above The Locks pub is extremely quiet due to it being an unnavigable stretch of water, meaning you can lose yourself in the peace and tranquillity that the River Waveney has to offer. With TheCanoeMan Beccles being based at the Lido, it gives you a unique opportunity to either start or finish your day with an invigorating swim in one of the few remaining outdoor pools in the region.
