Set departure dates are recommended dates subject to the minimum of 4 people booking and if we get to 20 people we will close these dates.
These dates are in line with the low water season. These dates are traditionally from mid August until early January, and only change due to exceptional circumstances such as the last season where the river was closed for 4 months!!! Normally it is a maximum of 1 month. Last year we opened the low water season in late August so to try and keep up to date we have adjusted our dates of set departures accordingly.
