Introduction to kayaking lesson

kayak - Up to 4 people


Introduction to Kayaking lesson. This introduction lesson introduces you to the skills of developing confidence in paddling touring kayaks on the river.

We will focus on your forward and backwards paddling skills and introduce you to the skills needed to be able to paddle with confidence on the river. Paddling sessions look at developing your skills in kayak handling as well as skills like getting into and out of the boat in a range of scenarios as well as improving your paddling techniques.

What to bring

Please bring with you a change of clothing, suitable wet shoes for paddling in and a hat for warm/ cold weather. Bring a drink as we will be out in the elements for a couple of hours when paddling.


Water confidence and an ability to carry the boat at a portage point or lock. Be prepared to get wet as some skills focus on paddling techniques for edging and controlling the boat.


In the session you will have the opportunity to develop several paddling skills including forward and turning techniques for boat control. By the end of the session you should feel happy to be able to go paddling as part of a small group on the water confident that you are able to paddle independently.
