We had a great day kayaking in Seville. The location was easily accessible from the city center, and the two hour time was perfect to go down to the bottom limit of the river and come back at a leisurely pace. When you arrive, go to the office to check in. It helps if you know a bit of Spanish to speak to the people working there. It was fun to see the other people out enjoying the river like us.

A unique way to explore Seville, thoroughly enjoyable, your safety is paramount to them, single kayak or double your choice, locker to store your belongings and a sealable bucket for your phone, wallet etc that you can take on the trip. No prior experience necessary, the river has zero current as the main flow is now diverted around Seville so its like being on a lake. 10 out of 10

Hi... we really liked it... it was a lot of fun :)) The guide's briefing was easy but it was enough... everything was right on the jetty, you just had to get on.... Highly recommended

A very nice experience to go as a couple and in which you can see the city from another perspective. Highly recommended especially to people who like different activities

Even if it's your first time, the guide will show you what you need to know. Brilliant.
