Hatt Adventures organised an amazing two day, one night kayaking/camping trip down the River Medway for a group of 12 friends. We had an amazing time! The instructor was professional but relaxed and made the whole experience really, really enjoyable. We were a mix of paddling abilities from complete novice to experienced and we were all catered for. The campsite was idyllic right on the edge of the river and we had sole use. Campfire, BBQ, beer and friends after a good days paddling, doesn't get much better.

Thank you Hatt Adventures, we shall be using again for sure!!!

Had a great weekend kayaking on the River Medway with Tom Hatt. All kit was provided and Tom was on hand throughout the route with encouragement and advice. A great group activity that would be equally enjoyable as individuals or couples.

It was a lovely afternoon and we all had a great time. Thanks again to you and your instructor for a great day.

Just wanted to say we had a fantastic day on the Medway, the team really enjoyed the experience! We’ll be booking another group soon! Thanks again.
