Small Group Full Day Programme: to accommodate demand you can choose to potentially share your full day session with one or two other people who want the same sort of training in the same craft (sea kayak / surf ski). This is a more economic choice if you are booking just for yourself. Once we commit to a date we will run the session (except for really bad weather or COVID restrictions), so you may in fact still have the session to yourself if there are no other bookings for that day.

Multi-session programs: if you would like ongoing training, book a 5 session program and receive a discount on your tuition plus complimentary kayak hire so you can practice your skills. Contact us if you are interested in this option.

How to Book:

  1. Email us to discuss your needs and availability [email protected] . 
  2. Once you have a date confirmed, payment can be made through the options below, including discounts for multi-session bookings and 2-3 persons. Do not make payment until we have confirmed a date with you.
  3. We will send you an email confirming your booking.

  1. Expert Tuition 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 22nd Dec 2021

    Our Kayaking day was windy and rainy and i must say that i wasnt looking forward to it anymore!

    However under Rohan's tuition it was an excellent few hours! We learnt alot and had alot of fun.

    His briefing was pitched just right to keep the kids entertained but also impart really important info to my husband and myself regarding charts, wind and other conditions.

    He made sure we were warm on the water (thanks for the tip regarding rashies!) even when we practiced capsizing and re-entering the kayak.

    It was infact the perfect day to be out on the water as it showed us how important the wind factor is! under Rohan's expert guiding and tutoring we had a fabulous few hours.

    Highly recommended.

  3. Great learning experience 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 17th Apr 2021

    It was great. Rohan obviously knows his stuff, is very clear, thorough and systematic in explaining and demonstrating gear and techniques, as well as making sure I'm still with him and doing alright. It was paced very well to push me a little bit, but not too much - which is what I wanted - and good time for practice. A great experience throughout, highly recommended.

    I highly recommend the kayak shop for personalised 1:1 sea kayaking instruction- they were super helpful in organising a session at last minute, Rohan was a great instructor and showed excellent knowledge and a great rapport and way to share his expertise! Thanks
