On this section of the river Teifi you will often come across the coracle - is a small boat with a basketwork frame, propelled by using a paddle. They have been known in Britain for many centuries and are the successors of the small skin covered boats described by Roman writers, the earliest record we have of them being from Julius Caesar who while fighting in Spain in 49bc ordered his troops to make wickerwork boats covered with hides.

Although its use is now restricted to West Wales and the River Severn, it was formerly widespread throughout Britain. For more information see Coracle Museum.co.uk at the spectacular Cenarth Falls.

The river at Cilgerran Gorge is ideal for watersports such as rowing and canoing. You can bring your own canoe with you and make use of the slipway, or alternatively it is possible to book lessons and group activities at Cardigan Bay Active
