Adult intro to sea kayaking session

Port Quin
kayak - Up to 5 people


Intro session Price £30/person in a double or £40/person in singles.

This is an introduction to sit-on-top sea kayaking and an exploration of one of our naturally sheltered harbour locations at Port Quin, Port Isaac or Port Gaverne. Great for a family, a group with a mixed ability, or individuals looking to have a go at sea kayaking. Everyone can just jump on the kayaks and have a go, without committing to a longer journey along the coast, whilst still have a great time in a stunning location. We go over the kayak, basic paddle strokes and safety information about our location. We then get on the water to put the theory into practice. We will tailor the session to suit the group and just because we are not going too far along the coast, doesn't mean we can't give you a challenge or two if you wish! We generally use double kayaks for their stability but singles are available also. We can also use these sessions if you are thinking of getting your own kayak and would like to learn about the safety aspects of going out on your own, such as tides, weather forecasting and what safety kit to carry.

What we provide:Wetsuit (if required), Wetsuit boots, Buoyancy aid, Helmet, Kayak, Qualified instructor with plenty of local knowledge and lastly a great experience.
