This 5-day course is the perfect all-round introduction to sea paddling, with no prior experience required.


Over the five days we aim to cover the following;
 
Time will be spent introducing you to basic boat handling skills and seamanship skills but we will also introduce you to other factors such as trip planning, tidal and weather considerations, wildlife spotting and journeying, all with the aim of giving you the basic skills, confidence and kayaking knowledge to enable you to go off on short journeys and safely explore the coastline from a new perspective.  

Minimum Standard:

No previous experience of sea kayaking is required, however previous experience in a general purpose kayak performing basic maneuvers would be an advantage to make the most of your course

Our friendly instructors will be with you every step of the way, offering clear instruction, guidance and encouragement. 
 


Plas Menai will provide all necessary personal protective clothing including wetsuits, waterproofs, buoyancy aids and helmets.
 
Please bring with you;
  • Swimming togs & towel
  • Footwear for on the water (closed toe, with grippy sole, no flip flops or crocs).
  • Sock that cover your ankles
  • 50p for locker

This 5-day course will give you a great foundation on which to build and develop your skills.  After your course, in order to consolidate new skills and techniques learnt, it is recommended that you should complete some calm weather, short coastal journeys and or some short skills sessions on sheltered water. Ideally these should be with other paddlers for safety reasons but also for feedback and better progression and enjoyment. As you build up your confidence, you may want to consider stepping up to the next level by developing your skills further on either our 5 day Progress your Sea Kayaking - All Round Progression or our 2 day Progress your Kayaking - Basic Progression courses.
