I’ve no kayaking experience at all? Not to worry, that’s exactly what your instructors are there for. We cater for absolute beginners and aim to get you up to the best standard you can be during the duration of your time with us. I’m nervous in the water/scared of capsizing? This is something that a lot of people can feel during the initial stages of their newly found kayaking career. However, with time, we hope to bring everyone up to a standard that they can comfortably paddle within a group. Everybody will be wearing a buoyancy aid, so even if you do happen to take a tumble you’ll be able to keep your head above water with minimal effort (x10 easier than treading water in a pool!)
