Kayak Taster Session

These sessions are ideal for anyone who has never paddled a kayak before and would like to give it a go before they commit to a full river trip. We’ll provide you with safety equipment and instruction to help you learn how to paddle a kayak or just improve your technique.  You’ll experience a structured session delivered by our experienced and passionate coaches which will aim to make most of exploring the lower part of the River Dee at Chester whilst learning the correct strokes to go in straight line, stop and turn. We’ll also aim to build your confidence as you also learn how to keep yourself safe and discover what to if…

  • Paddle, Buoyancy Aid
  • Safety briefing and demonstration before getting on the river
  • Top tips and feedback from qualified coaches
