Duckies in the Great Glen

From: £59.00

Duckies

Duckies are great fun for everyone; families and youth groups can enjoy the bounce and splash of River Spey trips.  Adult groups such as stag and hen parties may opt for the exhilarating experience of the Grade 3 waters of the river Garry.

What are they?

Duckies are essentially an inflatable canoe.  The boat sits two or three people and you can paddle them using either a canoe or kayak paddle. They are very stable but in the event of capsizing they are easy to climb back into without having to go ashore.  The boats sit close to the water and are self bailing so no need to keep emptying if you happen to take a swim!

They are a wonderful combination of rafts mixed with canoes and provide the best of both worlds for river descents. They are nice and close to the water meaning a fun bouncy ride down all the rapids.

Duckies are an all year round activity. River conditions can vary with the seasons. The conditions are generally pleasant in Summer with warmer temperatures while the higher water levels are normally during the Spring/Autumn.  No previous experience is required except for the River Orchy.
