On completion of the course each participant will be proficient in kayak handling, the use of oars, life vest and related equipment. A demonstaration of lifting, carrying and launching will be given. An explanation of basic paddling techniques will be given, and you will be advised on the correct procedure for boarding and disembarking from both beach and quay scenarios. It is also very important that you are able to “right up” the kayak in the case of capsize. In-depth discussions will address safety aspects generally, and how to execute life saving methods for yourself and your tour partner. It goes without saying that all tour participants must be able to swim. The minimum age for tour participation if 12 years. Each course lasts for approx. 3 hours.
