New Sea Kayaking Donegal Training Group 2023

Sea Kayaking Donegal is a registered sea kayak delivery partner with British Canoeing and Canoeing Ireland. and British Canoeing

All of our tours and kayak training sessions are guided by a fully updated qualified and experienced level 3 sea kayak coach.

The aim of our long term paddler sea kayak training program is to allow you gain the kayak skills, knowledge and experience in becoming an independent paddler on the sea. The training which is due to start in April and continue throughout the year using different venues and environments in Donegal and all training equipment needed can be supplied.

Being a member of our long term paddler development group can also give you access to our peer lead sea trips group and our winter program- learning to kayak roll on our swimming pool course.

As most of the training takes place on the sea, people have to be aware that sea kayaking can be physically challenging along with at times the environment we will be paddling in. As the kayaks we will be using for the training are sit inside sea kayaks with closed cockpits ( not sit on tops ) we will be using spraydecks to practice rescue drills in open water. We advise that people who sign up for the training would need to have a good level of fitness and water confidence. The paddler max weight limit for the sea kayaks is 95kg (15 stone).   

If you would like the chance to become a proficient sea kayaker and progress your paddling skills and would like some further info please contact James at or through the contacts page here on our website.
