Itinerary

* Please note: Itinerary is subject to weather and availability.

What to Expect


On day one, you'll have a course introduction and outline, we'll issue your equipment then get straight into learning the foundation strokes. In the evening you'll learn more about equipment for the paddler or develop further skills as appropriate. On day two, you'll have more coaching during a short journey, both solo and tandem. We finish with a course debrief and equipment return.

Experience Required

You should be water confident and able to swim.

You'll have a fantastic time - and probably get wet!
