Details

What is Kayaking?
Sometimes confused with canoes. Kayaks have spray decks and are generally used on rougher water including sea kayaking. Originally an Inuit or Eskimo design with the boat consisting of a light wooden frame covered with watertight skins with the kayaker using a double-bladed paddle. Modern kayaks are typically constructed from plastic, wood, fabrics over wooden or aluminium frames, fibreglass, Kevlar or carbon fibre.

What will I be doing during the Kayaking session?
The paddler faces forward, grasping the double-bladed paddle and dipping the blades alternately on either side to propel yourself forward. Qualified instructors will give you suitable tuition during the session to ensure you get the most out of the activity.

Who can go Kayaking?
No previous experience is required as we will choose a venue to suit your requirements and level of experience. You can start as young as 8 or 9 years old. We not only run sessions for those who just want an enjoyable funday out but also training and assessment days for those looking to improve their skills and coaching awards. This is a great group activity.

Where can I go Kayaking?
Sessions are based in South Wales, 25 minutes north of Swansea and 45 minutes west of Cardiff. Adventure Britain use a number of rivers, canals and lakes in the area and can also arrange kayaking trips to other parts of the UK for fun or training purposes.
