The Objectives

By the end of the course, you'll have improved your foundation sea kayak journeying skills in more challenging environments.


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

What to Expect

You'll spend day one at a local coastal venue to revisit your essential foundation skills ahead of applying them in more challenging environments. During the rest of the course you'll visit a range of venues to help develop your skills. Ideally, you'll spend at least one day in a suitable tide race, one day around a rocky coastline, and another on waves both at sea and on surf zone.

Experience Required

Sea kayaking experience in a range of sea states up to force 4 winds and a good level of fitness that enables you to paddle 15-20 miles per day.
