Your Gateway To The World Of Sea Kayaking


The Level 2 Introduction to Sea Kayaking is by far our most popular course. It is designed as a springboard for people who are keen to learn the skills that will help them start to plan their own kayak trips. Our World-Class Sea Kayak Destination makes each day of the course a unique and memorable experience

Course Content

We tailor each course to suit your needs and meet the aspirations of the group. However, a typical Level 2 course will involve things like: 

  • How to select good launching and landing sites 
  • Personal skill development and how to paddle efficiently
  • Quality, individual coaching and feedback  
  • Rescue and emergency procedures 
  • Tidal planning and navigation 
  • Paddling as part of a group, how to help a friend that has got into difficulty 
  • Equipment, what to carry and how to use it
  • Each day, your coach will use our world-class location to lead you to sections of the coast that you might not have had the confidence to experience without their expertise
  • Certification – Awarded by Paddle UK formerly British Canoeing (Internationally Recognised)  

The Course is very much practical-based, with big days out on the water. There is a huge amount of truly inspirational Sea Kayaking on offer in Dorset; you will plan trips that take you through this spectacular environment, developing your skills and understanding as you paddle. You’re sure to see some wildlife and have time for a break on one of the beaches during your tour.

The Right Level For Me?

You are looking for an adventure and want to get started on some sea kayaking. You don’t need any previous experience in kayaks; however, you’ll really enjoy the course if you’re averagely fit and fairly at home in the water.

Challenge By Choice

Do you want to learn to Roll back up after a capsize (AKA an Eskimo Roll). Tell your coach and you can start or polish the skill on this course. Don’t fancy getting wet? No problem just let your coach know. Whether you love testing your skills in the surge through the rocks or prefer to keep your distance your coach will set the right challenge for you.

If you are keen, another highlight (conditions permitting) is experiencing the thrill of surfing waves in a Sea Kayak!
