Kayaking Adventures in Sussex
We can confidently say travelling by water is one of the most fun ways to explore the UK’s idyllic countryside. Our kayak experience is the perfect way to introduce you to this thrilling and diverse sport. Our highly qualified instructors will take you on a small section of either the River Ouse or Weirwood Reservoir, these rivers offer beautiful scenery for you to admire while learning something new and exciting.
You will start the day with a safety briefing and a run through how to use the kit to make sure you get the most out of your adventure. Then the fun begins! When you first head out on the water, your instructor will be there to help smooth out those first time wobbles and help increase your confidence.
If you really take to this sport and want to further your skills, you can jump on our Discover Kayaking Award course and develop a wider range of knowledge and meet like minded people.
There’s nothing quite like learning a new sport, it helps you build self-belief and the sense of achievement you get is really satisfying. Kayaking is a brilliant sport to try, it’s not as hard as you think, but it is very addictive.
