Level 1 Sea Kayaking
Learn To Kayak
The Level 1 Sea kayaking course is ideally suited to beginners, people who have never been in a kayak, but who want a fun experience and to learn the skills necessary to enjoy being on the water
We tailor each course to suit the aspirations of the group but the typical Level 1 course will cover things like:
- How to launch and land your kayak
- Basic kayak control & paddling techniques
- How to help your friends back into their kayak if it capsizes
- Learn the basics of how to predict the tide and plan a journey
- Certification – Awarded by Britsh Canoeing (Internationally Recognised)
The coastline around Dartmouth gives us easy access to sheltered coves with gentle tides that always allows us to find appropriate locations for the skill level of the group. If it looks like it’s going to be a bit too rough out at sea you will explore one of the many beautiful sheltered estuaries that can be found here. This lets you build your confidence on the water whilst enjoying a day of stunning scenery and wildlife.
