This introduction to sea kayaking course is approx 3 hours and gives you the basics of the sport of sea kayaking.
We have set the course up for first-time paddlers, and those who have never had any formal instruction. The aim of this class is to give you a good foundation in the knowledge and skills essential for safe and enjoyable paddling.
During the lesson you will learn about: kayak equipment, kayak design and what to wear, as well as how to manoeuvre your kayak (forward, reverse, sideways, turning and steering) support strokes, "wet-exits" and recovery from a capsize.
Single kayak, paddle, PFD, spray deck, pump, spray jacket and thermals - we kit you out with all the specialist paddling gear. Please note: You can bring your own sea kayak for a reduced rate.
