New for 2020, We're offering two courses in the Sea Kayaking paradise of Brittany. Famous for its beautiful granite landscapes, interesting tides and surf, Brittany has everything you'd ever want to develop as a Sea Kayaker. As with all our trips at this level we aim to increase your confidence and skills in planning and paddling in tidal waters, whilst also developing practice paddling and rescue skills in practice. After the course, you'll go away with the knowledge to plan your own trips on the Sea in tidal destinations.
We also work towards the new British Canoeing Coastal Sea Kayak Award (the old 4 star personal skills) training skills in swell, tide, surf and wind. On top of all this, we promise a great break away combining the best paddling, fun social week with a good dose of humour with your "Swiss German speaking" British Coach & Guide.
Dependent on weather and sea condition we use a variety or locations along this fantastic coastline with options for shelter and exposure on the Atlantic West coast.

Please note that our courses and tours run in all weather that is safe for us to paddle in. Often the weather is better than predicted and part of the charm of our sport is experiencing nature with all its faces and even on a rainy day, the views and atmosphere can be beautiful and dramatic. We pride ourselves on having top quality equipment, including Palm longjohn wetsuits and high end paddle jackets to ensure you’re warm and happy whatever the weather. If conditions are unsafe to paddle in we will notify with as much notice as we can.
Please note that bookings are subject to our terms and conditions and cancellation policy. We recommend that you have an insurance policy to cover the course costs in case of illness or medical problems. Swiss residents can purchase annual AXA cancellation insurance at the time of booking.
