About Our Kayak Tuition

Professional Kayak Coaching

Our personalised private kayak lessons are perfect for the beginner or the intermediate paddler wanting to hone that difficult skill. We run these sessions on a very low instructor to student ratio. As a result, you get a lesson that is tailored to your needs and is run at your pace.

This allows us to be very flexible in the tuition we can offer. Want to try kayaking for the first time, but would like some guidance on the water? Come along and we will get you controlling the kayak and show you some essential self rescue techniques.

Have you been kayaking for a while but want to improve your paddling skills? We can assess your current level and give you some pointers to work towards. Or maybe you have been out of the sport for a while, and want to brush up on some forgotten skills. Working with a qualified coach on a one to one ratio means the lesson is completely suited to your aims and speed.

An exciting learning curve, a great experience, and value for money.

  • Professional, experienced kayak instructors with full qualifications.

  • Relaxed sessions tailored to your current skill level and aims

  • Toilets, changing rooms and locker facilities.

  • Bring your own boat, or choose from our selection of Demo Kayaks.
