Kayak 2 Hour Intro Adventure Details

The perfect way to get started with kayaking if you’re a curious beginner! Get out on the water and give kayaking a go on one of our 2 hour taster sessions. Our aim is to give you all the information and experience you need to decide if you would like to invest further in the sport. It’s fun, and a lot easier than you think! The session will be led by one of our qualified instructors. This is your chance to pick their brain and ask as many questions as you want! Please remember these sessions are for newcomers to sample the sport. If you are wanting to learn specific skills or want to learn something specific, then please look at our other courses. The session will be on the river, providing a fantastic location with calm waters. You will be on the water for most of the session, which will include paddling and some bank-based coaching.  What we will cover in the kayak taster session:

  • Equipment
  • Launching and landing your kayak
  • Basic paddle strokes and skills
  • Safety
When you arrive at our venue you will be met by a member of our team and they will fit you with your equipment and you will be given a short safety briefing and explanation in the use of the equipment before getting onto the water. The session will take place on a calm stretch of water. You will be taught how to sit comfortably, control and stay safe in your kayak as well as hopefully interacting with some of the local wildlife.

Prerequisite (what experience should I have)

  • None, just happy to be on the water.

Venue loaction, parking and your arrival details

A beautiful location for an enjoyable kayak experience. This section of the River Wear is well sheltered from the elements and allows us to paddle on a calm stretch of flowing water. The river is abundant with wildlife, and provides a great little heaven for spotting kingfishers, otters, heron, salmon and sea trout, mute swans, muscovy ducks, great black-backed gulls, wood pigeon, and the occasional glimpse of the roe deer!  We’ll be hitting the river at Tyne Green. You’ll find the team located close to the kids play ground, before you get to the golf club. Drive along Tyne Green Road and you’ll be able to spot the kayaks on the grass!
