Our sea kayaking introduction courses are ideal if you have a little kayaking experience and would really like to get out and explore the local coastline whilst learning the basic skills of sea kayaking. The course will utilise local venues to provide you with an introduction to the fun and adventure to be had exploring the Anglesey coast by sea. With so many isolated coves, islands and sea caves there is always plenty to see and explore. You will be supported in doing this by an experienced local coach helping you to learn the skills and acting as your guide.

Courses are one or two days long. The course is delivered flexibly depending on the conditions and group but will focus on developing boat-handling skills whilst exploring the local coast, two-day courses usually include a full day journey on the second day. All equipment is provided.

You will meet for your session at our base in Rhoscolyn where there are changing facilities, toilets and showers. Most sessions then take place a short walk away at Rhoscolyn beach. After a short period of instruction in the bay where you will be familiarise yourself with your kayak, we will head out to explore the local coastline.

We advertise a number of course dates throughout the year, but run many more bespoke sessions in response to requests for specific dates. We can run this course for a minimum of 2 people.
