This course follows the BCU 3 star sea syllabus. The 3 star award is the standard that most recreational sea kayakers aspire to and most local clubs and groups ask for before becoming a member. It is a certificated course (if you choose to take the assessment) but can also be attended if you do not wish to gain the qualifications, but would like to develop your sea kayaking skills.

Training course - 17th and 18th May

Assessment - 19th May

You must be aged 18 or over for this course.

£80 per day per person


enquirebook nowFamily Sessions

We are pleased to be able to offer family trips over the Easter holidays. We would love to share sea kayaking with children from age 6 to 12 in our double sea kayaks, with an adult. But don't worry, we have single sea kayaks too for the bigger kids. The session will last for 2 hours and will allow families to go seal spotting along the coast.



Young Family Sessions allow families to use our two double sea kayaks with their school aged children (aged 6 - 12).  You will learn how to manage the boats and hopefully get out on a short coastal journey.
