So whether you are complete beginner, looking to start kayaking, canoeing or paddleboarding independently or have completed a Try session and would like to develop your skills then this is the course for you. You can either join for 1 day of the course or both days! Join us for either the "kayak" day as we cover skills in both sit-on-top kayak and closed-cockpit kayak - or the "canoe and sup day". Whether you join for one or both days you will complete the Discover course in your chosen craft and along the way we'll cover key safety topics and complete short journeys. By the end of the course you’ll be ready to buy your own boat and start paddling for yourself – we’ll of course advise you on the best boat for you, signpost you to clubs and follow on paddling courses.
