Kayak Lesson 1  (1.5 hours)            (all equipment provided)           from £25

Kayaking is great, and our passion for the sport will rub off on you in this introductory lesson. Anyone can jump in a kayak and make it work, but our coaches will show you how to launch and land safely, forwards and backwards stokes, turning, how to sit properly (so you look cool and like you know what you are doing). You will cover kit, safety and what to do next.

Canoe Lesson 1 (1.5 hours)            (all equipment provided)           From £25

In the right conditions (like a flat river - like we have locally) then a canoe is a beautiful boat to learn to paddle. Slightly more relaxed than kayaking, and of course you can do it with a friend. Paddling a canoe is accessible to people of any ability. Our canoe coaches love this discipline and will teach you everything you need to know to be safe and enjoy the river.

Canoe Lesson 2 (1.5 hours)            (all equipment provided)           from £25

Canoeing is easy to start. 2 people in a boat can make it go. In this lesson number 2 we will look at proper canoe skills. How can 1 person paddle a canoe without it turning? whats the best way to sit? what is a 'J' Stroke? We will pack as much information into this as possible, with time for you to learn, practise and develop in a fun, relaxed session.
