Taking kids canoeing- how old?
Firstly, apologies if this is in the wrong section!
Ok, this is probably quite straight forward but I'm looking for advice on what would be the most appropriate age to take a child in a canoe for a wee paddle in the shallows?
The family and I are heading to a lodge on the side of Loch Tay in a couple of weeks and I would love to hire a canoe for an hour and take my eldest out on the water. Problem is she's only two and a half years old. She can swim with arm bands but I can't decide if I'm being really stupid even thinking about it.. or over reacting thinking its too dangerous.
I have not kayaked in years (although I have a K2 hanging from my fence), and never really used an open canoe, so would appreciate others thoughts on this.
Many thanks in advance
