Overnight trips

Big Canoes are perfect for overnight canoe camping trips. We have a remote wild campsite and tipi tents that add to the experience.

An half-day excursion or full day out canoeing in a Big Canoe is the perfect way to explore the shallow waters of the stunning 36 km2 natural harbour at Poole. It is a stunning location, fully deserving of its designation as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. You can choose between a lazy trip taking in the beautiful surroundings and nature or a more energetic adventure paddle around the extensive waters. You could even try to recreate the paddling of the iron age traders who used similar-sized dug out canoes in Poole Harbour over 2000 year ago! We have multiple canoes available for these excursions and each canoe can be paddled by between four and twelve paddlers. The exact route taken will depend on the prevailing tide and weather conditions but all of ours tours offer the opportunity to observe the diverse wildlife and breath-taking scenery.
