We’ll start with Swansea’s River Tawe

In and around Swansea the most easy body of water to paddle on is the River Tawe.
You’ll want to take a look at your entry and exit points and the flow of the river first , but you’re not exactly going to be blown or taken anywhere where you can’t get yourself out of.
Its a mild flowing river (unless its been raining ) and the easiest access point is down where the river meets the sea – specifically the Sub aqua slipway which is situated very close to the sail bridge there is also a large pay and display car park right next to the access point.
From entering the water you can chose to paddle under the pedestrian footbridge which leads on the pontoons or paddle around the boats and then back up the river and under the sail bridge …you’ll soon be out of sight and enjoying the river Tawe river as its gently meanders up towards the Liberty stadium.
