Detail of Trip

We plan to camp near the coast with easy access to Aldburgh and Felixstowe Ferry, travelling up on Friday evening. We will paddle the coast along Orford Ness and the River Alde estuary, along with a trip up the River Debden for Sunday lunch.

If you don’t want to camp you have the option to find a Bed and Breakfast or AirBnB as an alternative. If you do plan to camp, you will need your own camping kit (eg tent, sleeping bag, cooking equipment).

Who is this trip for?

This is a perfect trip for paddlers with limited experience on the sea, looking to extend their skills and gain more sea experience in the company of others in a similar position.

This trip is categorised as grade B, which means you need to have completed the British Canoeing (BC) Explore Award and been on at least two CKC paddles in 2024 (including Thames paddles).
