Take the whole family out for a day and learn to kayak, what better way to spend more time together as a family than by taking up a new hobby? Kayaking can be enjoyed by everyone, young and old alike, and spending time as a family surrounded by the calming atmosphere and beauty of the water is an experience not to be missed.

Whether you’re wanting to try kayaking with a view to taking it up as a hobby or just want to have a fun-filled family day out, the course will be tailored to your abilities and aspirations. Join other families under the expert tuition of our experienced and qualified instructors. You'll learn all the basic to get your kayak moving and exploring the water. You will learn how to paddle correctly, learn what to do if you capsize and get the opportunity to play a few games!

You will be guaranteed to finish your day buzzing with a real sense of achievement and confidence when you look back at the new skills you and your family have acquired, and may even be planning your next kayaking adventure...!

Private Group Sessions

We also offer bespoke family group bookings where you will get your own dedicated, experienced and qualified instructor. They will work with you and teach you the basics, giving you useful tips and tricks along the way. You will learn how to control your kayak and play some watery games.
