Kayaking & Canoeing
Kayaking is a perfect way for beginners to start watersports. A kayak is a small, narrow watercraft that is typically propelled by a double-bladed paddle.
Canoeing involves users moving through the water on a small craft, designed for either one or two people, with a single-bladed paddle.
Choose the right session for you; have fun, improve your technique and enjoy being on the water with friends.
Adult Kayaking Taster Session
These sessions are for beginners who want a taste of kayaking in a small group under the tuition of one of our qualified instructors. The ideal place to start if you are looking to do a qualification course.
