Savour an invigorating paddle down the Blue Lagoon, while visiting Durban, on the Dolphin Coast. Enjoy two hours exploring the lagoon, canoeing upstream and downwards towards the estuary mouth. It is an ideal group activity that brings you closer to nature and canoeing here is tide dependent.
This fun and wholesome activity allows you to enjoy the aquatic scenery while working your arms and getting a healthy dose of Vitamin D. Don’t forget to bring along sun block and a decent hat. We provide a canoe along with an experienced guide for you to thoroughly enjoy this canoeing adventure.

My husband & I went canoeing together with my two nephews. As first-timers, the one hour was slightly too long. By the end of it we were really tired and struggled to canoe back against the wind. Fortunately, we decided to turn back before reaching the bridge which is identifies as the turnaround point. All this being said, it is an experience that we will gladly repeat. Our guide, Skhumbuzo, was friendly and accommodating. We really enjoyed the experience and it was wonderful to enjoy something different that our beautiful city has to offer.
About an hour of canoing along the gentle umgeni river - owing the shallow waters you have to wait till it's a high tide. We took a two man boat and I managed to get some good exercise paddling (especially when returning, the wind being against us then). I think we were very lucky that it was almost cloudy so the sun was not too strong. We managed to see a variety of different birds including kingfishers and those bright red bishop birds. The GreenHub guides know the flora and fauna very well and give you explanations about the mangrove forest. And we rescued a beach umbrella and a large jute bag as our contribution towards the environment. Oh and a kiddies soccer ball. All in all very enjoyable to get a different perspective of the river than just walking alongside it. Thankyou!

The staff were friendly polite and accommodating. The experience was enjoyable and perspective changing. Given the opportunity I would definitely do it again. Suggest more green corridor activities on Groupon.
The service was excellent. But the experience wasn't what I would have expected. I couldn't sit comfartably then the guide raised his voice that the canoe will tip and he doesn't want to fall in the water. He wasn't dressed to get wet. Therefore the full time I have to sit very uncomfartably and dear not move and heart my muscles of the way that I was moving because I couldn't move to much. This more a scary experience and not a pleasure one. I won't do it again.
