Blimey! Is it June already? Well yes it is! That means it’s now Summer Season and we can review Spring! What an amazing Spring we have had on the lovely Bude Canal! Here are our Spring highlights! Thank you everyone! Enjoy!
We are very proud to announce that we have been awarded a Trip Adviser Certificate of Excellence for the 5th year in a row! This now means we are in the Trip Adviser Hall of Fame and are one of the very best outdoor activities listed in Bude!
A huge thanks must again go to all our great customers and all those who have recommended us on Trip Adviser. Much appreciated.
All reviews and recommendations are very important to us as they keep us on our toes and also help potential customers decide if a Bude Canoe Experience is for them.
Thank you again everyone 🙂
Well we certainly think so!
According to a ranking survey by Rank.com canoeing is the 5th most FUN outdoor activity you can do! Currently only beaten by camping, star gazing, hiking and swimming! Take a look at the survey and you can even take part!
P.S. According to the Cornwall Tourism Awards and Trip Adviser, the Bude Canoe Experience is one of the best outdoor activities you can do in Bude and indeed the South West 😉
The weather is looking great for canoeing this Bank Holiday Weekend! May is a great time to see the Bude Canal as it’s bursting in to life with plenty of blossom! Who knows you may even see a Water Vole!
Wow! The weather is looking good for the Easter Weekend! Today we were finally in our t-shirts! Happy days canoeing on the Bude Canal!
Remember you can book online anytime and hopefully we will see you in the canoes soon!!
Looking for food or drink either side of your canoe experience? Look no further than the highly recommended Get Your Veg On located right where we launch the canoes!
They serve the tastiest vegetarian food that even the most die hard carnivores will also love!
We are certainly off to a great start this Spring!
Although fresh it has been dry and sunny, perfect for canoeing on the Bude Canal.
The good news is, this dry weather is set to last well into next week.
Check the weather and then book your canoeing in an instant online!
We take pictures of all the canoe experiences we do and they are free for you via our Facebook page. Click here to see them! You don’t need to be a member of Facebook to view them!
Great news for the 2019 season!
We have two new canoes joining the Bude Canoe Experience Fleet!
They are lovely Old Town Discoveries 16.9’s.
These are capable of carrying 500kg and have 4 seats!
Perfect for enabling young families to paddle together comfortably in one canoe.
Here is a picture of them being fitted out at our base nr Holsworthy.
We are well and truly open for 2019! We had great fun on the Bude Canal this afternoon! We paddled from the Sea Lock to Rodds Lock and back, mastered basic skills and did a couple of challenges, learned about the history of the canal and saw some wildlife! Top sightings included; Herons, a frog, nesting Moor Hens, Ducks, Geese and Swans!
All great fun! We are open for canoeing on the Bude Canal!!😃🛶😃
With about a week to go until we open we did our pre-season paddle!
Litter picking, a bit of pruning and wildlife spotting (top spot – grass snake)!
Everything is coming alive!
Finally got my Mum to experience the Bude Canal from a canoe! She loved it!
Roll on April when we open!
The new 2019 Bude Canoe Experience flyer has just gone off to print.
A similar design to the trailer banner and we think they look great.
We get the flyers back on Monday and they will then be distributed to local tourist offices. Once again a big thanks to our happy paddlers!
We are busy preparing for April when we reopen! This morning the new Palm buoyancy aids arrived! They are brilliant, bright, super cool looking and of course very buoyant! Everything a Bude Canoe Experience paddler needs in a buoyancy aid!
The Bude Canoe Experience canoe trailer is getting a make over with these great banners.
It will look amazing and it’s going to make us really easy to find!
Keep a look out for us in the Crescent Car Park, Bude from the beginning of April when our 2019 season starts!
Huge thank you to all our happy paddlers in the photos!
Great news to be recognised by the the Luxury Travel Guide for the 3rd year in a row!

The Bude Canoe Experience has been awarded Highly Commended at the South West Tourism Awards! The South West is a huge area and we are very pleased to have been recognised at this level. In fact we are the only canoeing oriented tour to be recognised at this level in the South West! Once again a big thank you to all of our customers and friends helping us achieve this award.
Did you know? Although nearly all of our paddling is done on the gorgeous Bude Canal, Cornwall, our base is just a few miles away over the border in lovely Holsworthy, Devon!
