Activity Description

Sundays River Adventures canoes out to the public to enjoy the beauty of the Sundays River up close. We offer half day hiring of canoes.

We can accommodate up to a maximum of 30 people hiring the canoes, depending on availability.

The tour from our premises to the River Mouth is about 3,5km’s and depending on weather conditions, the journey to the River mouth can take anything from 2 to 4 hours, according to the tide and the wind. The river is on average about 2m deep at high tide except at the mouth where it is much shallower.

Experience the thrill and excitement of the area with the bird life ranging to approximately 210 recorded species and watching out for Mullet fish actively jumping into or over the canoes.
