Overview

You’re not a beginner, you’ve been out on sea- but you don’t quite feel confident or experienced enough to embark on a ‘journey holiday’ so you’d like to find something in between that’ll move you up to that level. Our friendly, highly qualified instructors will get you there on this five day course. You’ll revisit and develop your existing sea kayak techniques, enjoying some of the UK’s most stunning coastal waters as you do. And you’ll develop your roll in our heated indoor pool.

Objectives

You’ll have honed your existing sea kayak techniques and developed your roll to feel more confident. You’ll also have gained the fundamentals skills of trip planning and navigation.

What to Expect
