Taster sessions – Learn how to kayak

10.30am or 1.30pm start from Sandy Lane car park (CH3 5UE)

If you’ve never paddled a kayak before and want to get off to a great start; join one of our Kayak Taster Sessions.  Held on most weekends from April to October, our instructors will show you the basic skills you need to control your kayak.

Kayak Taster Sessions in single or double Sit-on-Top Kayaks.
1 hr session led by a qualified instructor with a maximum of 12 paddlers.  The session covers safety, basic paddle strokes and provides an opportunity to explore some of the River Dee with an instructor offering support and coaching.  Our sit on top kayaks provide a safe, fun way to acquire the basics needed for kayaking on flat water.
