We offer a range of courses from 2 days to 5 day throughout the year. The multi day course allow us more time to develop skills and to explore different environments allowing us to use the varied venues around the Pembrokeshire coastline.
This Intermediate sea kayaking course in Pembrokeshire takes the basics of boat handling, rescues and tidal planning and moves them on, into a more dynamic environment.
Emphasis of the course is on sea kayak handling & skills development at BC 2 and 3 star level. You will have the opportunity to develop the various sea kayaking skills along the wild Pembrokeshire coastline, whether this is tidal paddling, close quartering or managing your kayak in swell and or small surf.
This course will take you on some of our iconic Pembrokeshire coastal trips. These trips will vary depending on the conditions at the time but all the trips will be along stunning rocky shores with some tide, surf beaches and surrounded by abundant wildlife.
During the course we will endeavor to cover:
We can help you develop deep water rescues to help make you safer out on the water. We can also look at eskimo rescues to help build confidence.
We have consistent surf with beaches that having varying levels of exposure to our Atlantic swells, this allows us to choose the right size surf to help you develop your surfing skills
This is an integral part of becoming a self-sufficient sea kayaker. Each morning we will look at the forecast together to decide where the best location for the day will be. Pembrokeshire has some of the most exciting tidal flows in the British Isles and is the perfect venue to learn and refine your tidal understanding and planning.
During the course we will be able to work on any aspect of your personal paddling skills to help build your confidence. These skills will be based around the BC 2-3 star awards.
We try to adapt to our ever changing sea scape and use this amazing outdoor classroom to help you develop your skills whilst we journey along the coastline. We often journey up to 10 miles along the coastline traveling through the rock gardens, caves, tide races and playing on the surf beaches.
