  2. Great confidence builder 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 15th Mar 2016

    I've only had my new kayak since jan, and during this course I could put it through its paces with the confidence that being in a group with experienced instructors would not allow me to do by myself. I've also learnt how to pack my kayak and what to take and what not to take on overnight trips. Along with that, was learning the essential reading and planning of my trip in conjunction to tides and sea levels, wind and even sun verses cloud cover! I enjoyed this course so much, I think it's a must do for owners or non owners of kayaks. Everyday was a ten out of ten day for me.
