Kayak Taster Session

Our 2 Hour Kayak Taster sessions are designed as an entry point into the world of Paddlesports. In this 2 hour coaching session we will cover all the basic skills which you will need to enjoy and be safe whilst on the water. The main aim of these sessions is to get people into kayaks and enjoying themselves, plus we like to add in the basic skills of paddling forwards, backwards, turning, and going sideways. We also have a chat about what to do if it all goes wrong and you start seeing fish swimming around you – but there’s no pressure for you to actually demonstrate your upside down yoga.

We don’t have any set regime, so we can change these tasters to be exactly what you want – fancy a bit of a short tour? Playing games? Focusing on skills? We will ensure you get what you want from the session. These sessions are also great for birthday parties (for kids or bigger kids), or for families who want to do a fun activity together – please contact us if you want to arrange it as a special group booking as we have a range of other offers and opportunities we can add in (lunch being one of them).
