Kayaking is an amazing sport, exhilarating and challenging, the ultimate search for your flow! Dartmoor kayaking is some of the finest in the country, the famous river Dart offers sections to suit everyone and our experienced coaches know how to get the best out of you and the river!
We focus on white water kayaking, and can take you on your journey from complete novice to stylish master!
Beginners white water trip
Adrenaline and adventure! This trip is the perfect beginnings for a potential life long obsession with white water. Or just a taster, either way kayaking on white water is worth doing at least once!
This trip will see you face a river section with grade 1/2 rapids, along the way you will learn the necessary skills to navigate this dynamic environment.
Not your first time? If you’ve caught the bug and are looking for some coaching to help you improve, then this is the place for you!
We will ask you a bunch of questions to help us identify your experience and aims, then once on the river we will assess your paddling to enable us to meet your needs.
British Canoeing Awards
We can also provide a few British Canoeing awards. These are the Paddle Explore award and the White Water Kayak award.
The Paddle Explore Award covers everything you need to know when you are starting out. This covers all the aspects of a day paddling, the planning, execution and reflection of your paddling adventures. This can be undertaken in any suitable craft. Depending on your experience this award can take anywhere between a day to several trips. These are charged at our normal rates, plus a British Canoeing fee. Contact us to discuss undertaking this award.
The White Water Award celebrates your learning in the white water kayaking environment, up to grade 2. Depending on your experience this can be worked through in a single day, or it can be worked towards as part of a longer learning journey. This is charged at our normal rates, plus a British Canoeing fee upon completion. Contact us to discuss undertaking this award.
Learn to roll
Learn to roll your kayak in a nice warm pool! We have taught loads of people a safe and reliable roll. We can help you whether you’re starting from scratch or need to work on an unreliable roll.
We can work in the pool or in a section of river. Learning in a pool is a great way to work on rolling; it’s a warm and safe environment that allows a lot of practice and fast development. To really cement the skill and build a reliable roll, practice (and sometimes coaching) in a river is required too. We can support you whatever your needs!
