If you are new to kayaking our beginner lessons are for you.

Our qualified instructor led sessions on the beautiful Hamble River will see us get you paddling with confidence.

Your 1 hour session is split into two defined sections; during the first half of your session you will develop an understanding of the equipment, how to turn as well as paddle in a straight line, how to recover yourself should you fall off the kayak.


While the remainder of the session is your free time to paddle and put your new skills to use.


Our beginner kayak lessons also have a teaching ratio of one instructor to eight paddlers ensuring we are able to help you develop over the duration of the session.
