The ultimate way to get started

The perfect way to get started if you’re a curious beginner is to come along on one of our taster sessions.

These courses run regularly through the year and are a perfect introduction to the sport. The session will be led by a qualified instructor with years of experience.

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.
We do not accept group bookings. If you are wanting to learn skills or want to learn something specific then please look at our courses.

What you will learn at the taster session:
  • An overview of the range of boats
  • Equipment and the right boat for you
  • When and where to paddle
  • Launching and landing
  • Top Tips
  • Dealing with a capsize (demo)
