1 star Kayak/Canoe for Families
Weekend course £99 per person (course only, accommodation extra) - 2 day course
This course is aimed at Families, especially those with teenagers, who want to start kayaking and canoeing as a leisure past-time, and wish to extend their skills further than our taster half-day sessions. It includes a day at our lakes, building the initial skills for the BCU 1 Star Award, where you learn how to launch a canoe or kayak, how to paddle and steer as well as turning, dealing with capsizing and securing the vessel safety. Then to build your skills and confidence it is followed by a Paddle-day expedition down the River Exe and the Exeter Canal.
It can be combined with our Family Adventure Breaks for a longer stay.
Accommodation is available at an extra cost for those who want to stay overnight.
