Why do you need to do a training course?

BECAUSE SKILLS & KNOWLEDGE ARE ESSENTIAL FOR SAFE, ENJOYABLE SEA KAYAK JOURNEYS.

Kayaking in the sea is fun the first time you do it, usually on a sit-on-top kayak at a protected beach or bay . But if you want to explore the coastal environment safely you will need to use a more advanced sea kayak, and then you will have to know more than how to sit on top of a kayak.

Sea kayaks are especially designed to take you on such journeys and are amazing craft. Able to take you into the most remote and wild places on any coastline. A person has actually paddled a kayak from Germany to Australia – solo with no support.

But the ocean can be treacherous. The weather deadly. Combine the 2 when you are in a sea kayak and you need to know how to manage it, yourself and the environment. Taking a training course ensures your enjoyment & safety.
