Explore the magic of the Norfolk Broads and hire a Canadian Canoe or Kayak from Sutton Staithe Boatyard.

Based at the end of the beautiful River Ant, you can begin your Canoe and Kayak hire adventure by exploring the Sutton Broad RSPB Reserve.  The river beyond leads to a choice of routes which take in the picturesque waters of Dilham, Barton Broad and  Neatishead.  No previous experience is required, and we can offer suggestions so that even the most novice of paddlers will enjoy their time on the water. An easy-to-follow waterproof map is provided to help you find your way.

Canoe and Kayak hire is the perfect way to quietly enjoy the Norfolk Broads whilst taking in the sights of the Broadland wildlife. If you are lucky, you may see Otters, Grebes, Swans, Herons, Coots, Moorhens, Cormorants and the strikingly blue Kingfisher.

Hired a kayak for the day at short notice, fair price and friendly, down to earth service. Smashing place. Lovely quiet stretch of the River Ant to see with kingfishers, herons, warblers and tranquility.

Brilliant place to hire from. The lady I spoke to was so lovely and accommodating for our needs. Price was more than reasonable. Felt much better supporting the smaller companies. All the staff were so helpful and knowledgeable. This experience made our holiday, the boats, kayak and canoe we hired were in great clean and safe condition.  Would definitely recommend and will be back.  Big shout out and thanks to the team.
