Rhoscolyn is a fantastic place to kayak. Whether you want a fun taster session, introductory course, or an adventurous day out exploring the coastline with an experienced local guide.
There is kayaking within easy reach for all levels of ability with sheltered bays and beaches, classic sea-touring, tide-races and overfalls, surf, and daily moving water at the Inland Sea.
The coastline is stunning, and attracts international visitors on a regular basis. There are caves, inlets, coves and beautiful beaches. There is plenty to see, with stunning rock scenery and seals and sea-birds in profusion on the outlying stacks and islands. Snowdonia and the Llyn Peninsula provide a wonderful mountain backdrop to many of the trips.
We can cater for individuals, families and groups. No previous experience is necessary and all personal equipment is provided.
If you’ve always wanted to try kayaking but not known where to start, you’ve come to the right place. Using local venues such as the beautiful and sheltered Borthwen beach in Rhoscolyn you will find yourself in the perfect place to learn a new skill. Our experienced and fully qualified instructors will take you through the first steps of kayaking and introduce you to a new world for discovery.
No experience necessary. Sessions are available as half-day, full-day and short courses and as part of multi-activity days. Participants can also work towards BCU Star Awards.
BCU Two Star Award Skills Days
The BCU Two Star is an improvement award that helps paddlers develop fundamental paddlesport skills on flat water. The emphasis is on gaining a breadth of experience, creating the desired movement of the boat and developing an understanding into how the paddle, boat and water interact.
The skills days will develop paddling skills in both the kayak and canoe which are the basis for progression into more specialist skills in sea, river or surf kayaking. Skills days are usually run with either a kayak or a canoe focus, paddlers need to be proficient in both to go forward to assessment.
Assessments can be arranged for participants who reach the required standard.
See booking page for details.
“Accompanied” paddling sessions
We also offer mid-week “Accompanied” paddling sessions aimed at people who have had a taste of kayaking, maybe even have their own boat, but are not yet ready to venture out on their own. These afternoon / evening paddles will utilise a variety of venues around the Anglesey coast with venues being chosen based on the conditions on the day. Accompanied Paddling Sessions start again in April 2013.
Sessions will be led by an experienced local coach and will provide an informal way for people to gain experience and confidence. Why not come along and meet some new paddling buddies.
