Do you have any age restrictions?
On our sea kayaking weekends and holidays we welcome adults of 17 years and over. We offer a separate dedicated family sea kayaking holiday for families with children aged 16 and under.
Can I take any sea kayak awards?
On our beginners 4-day Odyssey you can work towards the British Canoeing (BC) Paddle Start and Discover awards. On our improvers 4-day Odyssey you can take the Paddle Discover and Explore awards. On the intermediate 4-day Odyssey we will work towards the BC Sea Kayak personal performance award. We cannot deliver training and assessment on the shorter 2 or 3-day courses.
Do you offer stand alone British Canoeing courses?
Yes, we offer the BC Sea Kayak award (similar level to the old 3 star test) intermediate paddler performance award on our Intermediate level sea kayak Odyssey courses.
What if I can’t make one of the advertised dates?
If you have a group of 4 or more, we can look to run a sea kayaking event on a weekend or mid week date that suits you. Please do contact us and we can organise a dedicated course for your club or group of friends on your preferred dates and group rates are available.
Where will our sea kayaking trips take place?
We work closely with the National Trust and have access to a range of beautiful un-spoilt National Trust locations on the North Pembrokeshire coast. The location is always chosen on the day so that we can select the most suitable place taking into account the weather, tides and swell.
Do i need a certain level of fitness?
The weekends and holidays are open to everyone, just pick the ability level that best suits you. As a beginner you don’t even need to be able to swim, you just need to be happy to go in the water wearing the flotation jacket. You’ll also need to fit into a wet suit that we provide. Any questions at all regarding ability or medical issues, please do contact us and we can answer any questions.
Do you offer group rates?
If you are organising a group or a club trip, discounts are available and we are happy to tailor make your holiday to suit your individual needs, interests and budget.
What equipment do you supply?
We’ll provide you with a kayaking ‘long john wet suit’, kayak jacket, buoyancy aid, a helmet wet suit boots. You’ll be warm, safely floaty and well protected. We supply a specialist sea kayak for these courses and holidays, and you are welcome to try the different types of kayaks during the course.
