National Kayak


Introduction to Sea Kayaking - 2-day


Aimed at those who have never kayaked, or who have tried it on holiday or at school and want to learn more. Two days of fundamental skills in calm waters, while enjoying journeys through stunning scenery.


We will start by introducing you to the equipment, and fitting you in your kayak. On day 1 you will usually launch from our base in central Oban, while on day 2 you may drive a short distance to explore a different stretch of coastline. Throughout the course, your instructor will teach you the fundamental skills needed to paddle efficiently, interweaving the teaching with journeys so that you can see how those skills come together in practice.
All equipment and clothing is provided, but you will need a packed lunch.
The course starts at 09.30 and finishes around 16.30 on both days.

Dates: 13/14 April, 27/28 April, 18/19 May, 8/9 June, 20/21 June, 29/30 June, 8/9 July, 20/21 July, 10/11 August, 31 August / 1st September
