Intro to Sit-On-Top (SOT) kayaking

(NOTE: These will resume in Spring 2022.)

If you have decided to make the most of our wonderful Irish coastline on your staycation this year, and have bought a SOT, or are considering using one this summer, this 1-day course will teach you important fundamentals and safety knowledge and skills.

We can provide equipment or you can bring your own. Cost is €100pp.



Intro To Sea Kayaking

(NOTE: These will resume in Spring 2022.)

Whether you are an absolute beginner who has never sat in a sea kayak before, or you have some kayaking experience, and want to rapidly progress to intermediate sea kayaker level, this is the course for you. This course is also good for anybody who wants a taster of sea kayaking to see if it's a sport they would like to take up, and provides advice on what equipment to get. The aim of the course is you will be able to kayak safely and competently with a group of kayakers being led in good weather and sea conditions, and you are able to assist in basic rescues. This will open the door for you to join guided sea kayak trips over the summer and the coming autumn, winter and spring on good weather days.  We teach the paddling skills required for CI SK L2 certification.

This is a 2-day course over a Saturday and Sunday. All equipment is provided. Cost is €195pp.


Level 3 training days and evenings

These are for people who have some foundation skills and experience in sea kayaking and want to keep progressing knowledge, skills and confidence. This is ideal for those who have completed our Intro To Sea Kayaking course, or have some previous informal sea kayaking experience. We focus first on ensuring fundamental sea kayaking skills and knowledge are solid and then build on top of those, advise on what skills you should work on next and what equipment to buy. These training days (weekend) and evenings (mid-week in summer) take the form of a guided sea kayak trip with a strong focus on learning. The training content is flexible as we adjust to the paddler's and group's needs and wants, and the weather and sea conditions. All equipment is provided, or you can bring your own. Cost is €100pp for day-trip training, and €50pp for evening-trip training sessions.


Rescues and Rolling sessions

These sessions are to teach and refresh safety skills in assisted rescues, self-rescues and rolling.  We don't do much distance because the focus is on wet work.



How to join a course

We run the Intro courses from May to September.  The Level 3 training is done all year round.

Note: We continue to take direct requests via PM and email for one-on-one and small-group intermediate to advanced training, and group bookings for trips, and we post on Facebook if we have availability.
