Enjoy the tranquility of the river with nothing but the sound of oar blades dipping in the water. View the abundance of wild flowers and reed beds as you pass by, and if you're lucky you might see herons or our resident family of Kingfishers.
Make a day of it and pre-order a picnic from Lime Wharf Cafe (or bring your own) and stop along the way for a swim and lunch. Please arrive in good time to allow us to get you away on time.

SELF LAUNCH: If you have your own kayak, you can park you car and launch from our jetty for £5 per boat (max £10 per vehicle). In August we charge £25 PER CAR. Space is at a premium & we need to save it for our restaurant, river cruise & boat hire customers.
Please try to arrive 15 mins early for your booking and we ask that you return your boat(s) at the agreed time to avoid further charges & delaying others.
ROWING TO BODIAM CASTLE: The river is locked at Scott's Sluice in Iden (just outside Rye) and therefore has no current as such. However, windy conditions can make rowing tough. Depending on the weather and your ability, it will take 1h 30 mins - 2h 30mins to row to the castle and about half an hour less in a kayak.
