What to Expect
You'll spend day one in our rolling pool, and on our pond and lake covering essential foundation skills and how to exit a kayak effectively in the event of a capsize. We'll then develop your boat handling skills using our wide fleet of kayaks. Throughout day two we'll visit other stunning local venues to enjoy all that Snowdonia has to offer where you'll continue to build on your new skills. If weather permits, you'll have one day on a local river and another on the sea.
You should be water confident and able to swim.
There really is nothing quite like 'messing about in boats' and the kayak is a flexible and adaptable craft that will provide you with endless hours of enjoyment. Come and learn the foundation skills with us and start yourself off on a lifetime of exploration
We want to help you focus on achieving your goals, so comfortable accommodation (with WIFI included) and good food are part of the deal - you don't need to think about sorting this out for yourself. Support is on hand from our friendly, and exceptionally well qualified, staff to help develop your understanding and personal skills. They also help you to formulate an appropriate action plan for your further development. What's more, you'll have access to our extensive range of paddling equipment and clothing to use whilst honing your chosen skills. You just bring yourself, your 'can do' attitude, and determination to learn a new skill.
