Canoeing and Kayaking in Cannes
Kayaking is a fun watersport that can be enjoyed as a family. Unlike canoeing, paddlers face forward and have a double bladed paddle. It is a versatile sport that you can enjoy in the sea and especially in the calm waters of the Mediterranean. You can take your inflatable or plastic kayak and make your way around the coastline to explore hidden coves and hard to reach beaches. There are some watersports centres and adventure companies who can take you out for your kayaking experience.
A not-so-gentle but extremely refreshing summer activity is one way to describe canoeing! Plunge yourself into the mountain streams via a series of abseil descents, jumps and natural water slides – just make sure you choose a warm day!
You will make your way along rivers and rapids, using the river bed as a natural obstacle course. Not suitable for very young children, but anyone over the age of about 8 can take the (very cold) plunge and try canoeing. With the safety of a guide everyone can abseil down cascades, splash into pools and ride the river rapids. You can choose from short beginners’ routes or longer ones for the more adventurous. The best area for this activity is the Verdon Gorge near Castellane. A basic level of swimming ability is required for safety reasons.
