Sea Kayak Training & Awards
As a British Canoeing Paddle Sport Awards training provider we run the Discover, Explorer, Sea Kayak and Paddlesurf Personal Performance Awards. These accredited Awards will help you develop your decision making regarding planning a kayak session or journey, what equipment to use and the practical skills needed at various levels to have a safe and fun time on the water.
Also at Sea Kayaking Donegal to ensure safety and reassurance we offer dedicated long term sea kayaking training to our groups. With help and guidance to small groups of like minded people we use different venues and locations in Donegal. Paddling on various types of water from sheltered conditions to begin with to more testing conditions and handling the sea kayaks in more choppy waters as we progress. The training we offer is based on the British Canoeing Sea Kayak Award. The long term sea kayaking training sessions cover a mixture of building confidence in our kayaking ability, planning journeys, weather, tides, safety and rescue techniques as well as boat handling skills concentrating mostly as part of a short journey. All equipment needed for the training can be supplied including sea kayaks, buoyancy aids, wetsuits and helmets.
We are also registered with Canoeing Ireland to operate guided sea kayaking tours. Please watch this space, contact us or follow our facebook page for details for our next available BC kayak course. More info regarding the BC Kayak Awards can be found at Gopaddling
