Half Day Bodyboating


A 3-hour adventure down the Llangollen River Dee. 


During this awesome new addition to the adventures offered in Llangollen, you’ll run the rapids from the mighty serpent’s tail down to our home at the Mile End Mill whitewater site.

Get ready to surf waves and experience the multiple rapids and small drops of the River Dee with the best Point of View, lying on your belly level with the water and action!

​It is the perfect mix of excitement and adventure. Using our specialist bodyboats, you will experience the rapids of the River Dee in extreme POV, getting the best thrill from the safety of a full-length bodyboard.

Similar to kayaking – but completely different, you’ll tackle the rapids Motor Museum, Camp Site, Tombstones, Ski Slope & Factory Falls from a totally new vantage!

Suitable for ages 10 and upwards

This session is run entirely on our site. We own the riverbanks for a 300-metre stretch and can re-paddle rapids if we like.

Occasionally due to high river levels we may run this session elsewhere, you will be informed of everything by your instructor.

The session is  3 hours long which includes 10 minutes to get changed.

We will supply you with a wetsuit, a white water PFD,  webbed gloves, and a Bodyboat of course. Depending on the quantity of “sense of adventure” mentioned above there will be terrific banter and questionable jokes       

You will need to bring Swimwear (we thankfully do not provide this) you will need to bring a pair of trainers or water shoes that fit securely, no crocs even the danger strap will not save your boot or dignity! You will also need to bring a towel, and a sense of adventure. During cooler months thermal base layers are recommended for those that are more sensitive to cold

Your Bodyboat adventure will be staffed by a safe, qualified and highly experienced white water professional. Many of our Bodyboat instructors also , axe-throwing and air rifle instructors are also raft guides, climbers, and kayakers too.

As stated above you will get wet depending on the time of year it can be cool. We supply you with thick wetsuits, neoprene gloves and socks. It is an active session, so you get warm once you are moving.

Accompanied children from 8 years old are welcome.

No. Our awesome PFDs will keep you afloat if you fall off your boadyboat. We have a small guest to instructor ratio, so you are looked after the entire time.

We would never say no. Please call our office before booking.

No. There may be up to 8 people in a group. Each range is designed to allow 8 people the maximum number of turns. We will never mix certain groups such as school groups, stag and hen events etc. Private sessions are available. Please call our office to find out more.

Here’s what one adventurer said

"Our party of 4 (in our 40's) had an awesome time. All the kit is top notch, and our instructors (Alex and Joe) were friendly, funny and very knowledgeable. We camped in our vans in the large car park (right next to the river) the night before, but that time we did the trip along the river, whereas this time was more focussed on skills, games and getting very very wet! Highly recommended for a fun day and something a bit different from just going to the pub!"
