Water Awareness Day

Water Awareness Days are available for river or open water environments (including coastal and estuaries).

Run by instructors with decades of canoeing and kayaking experience, the aim of the day is to equip you with the knowledge to carry out a continuous, dynamic risk assessment of your journey, and take informed decisions.

After a short session making sure you can move your Open Canoe or Touring Kayak forwards, backwards, sideways and stop; we spend the rest of the day travelling a short section of the river, looking at typical water features and strategies for safe paddling.

Water Awareness days do NOT cover white-water or additional skills needed for paddling closed-cockpit kayaks. If you would like a course covering any of these aspects, please contact us to discuss your requirements.

All year by arrangement. Check our Availability page for opportunities to join an existing day.
