Kayaks on the Crouch, in August. © 2017 Nick Skeens

Kayaking and canoeing on the Crouch can be a truly wonderful experience.

Exploring the backwaters of the River Roach or Lion Creek is a special pleasure.

Lion Creek is on the south shore opposite Creeksea. It is possible, around high spring tide, to carry your canoe across the road at the end of Lion Creek and then enter the River Roach and paddle up to Rochford.

The Burnham Sailing Club is encouraging people to get out on the water in canoes and kayaks.
