Kayaking for Two Water Experience

Kayaking for Two

Kayaking for Two

Red Letter Days - Kayaking for Two

Fancy doing something a little more adventurous on a day off? Kayaking is fun, active and a fantastic way to learn a new water based skill. Begin with a safety briefing and an outline from an expert instructor of basic handling skills. Then head out onto the water in a one-person kayak for a relaxing river trip through the Victorian Jephson Gardens and into the nature reserve. There may even be some games to play, all designed to make kayakers feel more at ease and competent in the water - it's a great way to end this fun-filled experience. Kayaking is one of the fastest growing watersports in the country and can't be beaten for the sheer joy of powering silently across the water.
Leamington Spa, Warwickshire

Kayaking for Two Reviews

Read what these people said about Kayaking for Two.

 
"The experience was a fabulous one, starting with a friendly and efficient welcome. The instructor was brilliant throughout and put us at ease immediately with humour and patience whilst we selected the equipment needed. We started paddling in longer kayaks but were given the opportunity to switch to more nimble craft towards the end of the experience. It was a really nice touch to experience both on the same session, back to back, and to be able to compare. A number of techniques were explained during the session, each one building on the previous and included edging and feathering. The experience was so good that we are considering a return to the centre to take a BCU starter certification. So what of the birds? Sadly, they were reluctant to perform and remained shyly hidden except for a quick flash. Overall, a brilliant afternoon which left us wanting more."
