Kayak Taster

Learn and have fun with the Experts

Half an hour with an expert kayaker to give you the basic skills and confidence to paddle around New Quay bay.

You don’t need to be super-fit, but you should be able to climb back into the kayak. You don’t need to swim well, but you should have basic water confidence.

It’s your session so it’s at your speed.

We have some dates in the diary but if you can’t make it we can try to plan around your timetable and our instructors’ availability.
