Dear Peter and Fiona,
Camden Haven Dragon Boat paddlers are very much used to the splendor of the Camden haven river when they paddle early mornings and evenings. Saturday evening, paddlers and their friends were treated with a 'no paddling' session on board the Camden Haven Cruises. It was a night of rest for the paddlers - and instead of paddling hard they sat back and enjoyed a night of drinking and nibbling on board the deck of the beautiful “Far-Lap”, compliments of Peter & fiona Ewan, whilst taking in the breath taking views up and down the river.

A lot of fun and laughter and friendship was had by the 60 people on board - the only disappointment was that the evening had to end and we had to say goodnight to our wonderful hosts Peter & Fiona and the gorgeous views of the Camden Haven river. Thank you to Peter, Fiona, and Kurt for a wonderful evening...............looking forward to our next outing with Camden Haven Cruises.
