Sea Kayaking is a beautiful, elegant way of exploring the coastal waters and enjoying the wildlife and scenery. As with all our courses there is a clear pathway from beginner to advanced, but our programmes always include a number of sea kayak journey’s and expeditions designed with those in mind for whom it is more about the journey and the location than just the coaching.

3 star training & assessment

This five-day course is a combined training and assessment. The week will be structured to meet the group’s needs, plenty of time will be spent developing the wide ranging skills required to efficiently paddle a sea kayak in a variety of environments. These environments will include coastal, estuary and open water venues with winds not above force 3-4.
