Sea Kayak Safety & navigation course

 

Half day sea kayak course perfect for those venturing out on a self guided adventure to make the most of the trip in a safe and structured way. Or if you just want to focus your education on the fundamentals of sea kayak safety.

How do we handle a capsize in deep water and how do we empty it? What do we do if a swimmer is separated from their kayak? How do we get into the kayak again from the water? How do we navigate among all the island? What is a good route choice and the roles to follow as a sea farer? 

 

These are questions you might ask yourself before the trip or worst of all when you need the knowledge out in the wild.
