Canoe Hire on the River Wye with Celtic Canoes - About Us

About Us

About UsCeltic Canoes has been owned and run by Dave and Simon since 2005, both keen canoeists and outdoor enthusiasts. Between us we have many years experience canoeing, climbing, running and walking throughout the UK as well as in the Alps and Himalayas.

Dave has worked in the outdoor activities business for over 20 years instructing, leading and running courses. He is also a qualified RLSS Lifesaving Trainer\Assessor.

Simon, along with his brother Martin, are both keen road and mountain marathon runners, competing in events like the Original Mountain Marathon (formally the KIMM) and the Saunders Lakeland Mountain Marathon. Martin is also a qualified Mountain Leader. Simon has competed in local and national orienteering events and at one time was the the British Orienteering Champion. Highlight of his paddling career so far has been paddling the big alpine waters of the French Alps.

Sam is a qualified Mountain Leader and four star canoeist. He helps us out during the busy summer weekends.

The end of the hire season means we get on the water ourselves during the autumn and winter months.
