Small Group Full Day Programme: to accommodate demand you can choose to potentially share your 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. For a 5-session 2 hour program pay only $650.
