Kayak 2 Hour Sunrise 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. Opting for the sunrise session will provide you with a beautiful start to your day and after the session we’ll have a freshly brewed coffee and pastry! The sessions are 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. You will meet your instructor at one of our stunning North East locations (Sea, River or Lake). 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, control and stay safe in your kayak as well as hopefully interacting with some of the local wildlife.
