We will run 1 hour taster sessions during the day between 9am and 4pm. There is plenty of beach and lawn area to relax and swim and make new friends before and after your session on the water. We have a protection concept due to the covid-19, you can read it here. Following the regulations is very important for everyone’s health and safety and also for us to be able to run as a business. For this event it is important that we keep 2 metres distance from each other at all times, Hightide will provide disinfectanct and make sure the kit you get for your use is clean and disinfected. Maximum group size (on the water) is 6.

Because of the current guidelines places need to be booked beforehand.



No experience required. Come and book on and try it for yourself.

Unsere Coaching Philosophie

Individuelles Seekajak Coaching ist unser Herzensangelegenheit. Wir holen dich dort ab, wo du bist und begleiten dich bei dem, was du erreichen möchtest.

Durch unsere mehrjährige Erfahrung auf dem Meer verstehen wir, was das Seekajak Fahren wirklich ausmacht und sind passioniert, dieses Wissen auf eine möglichst effektive und nachhaltige Art und Weise weiterzugeben. 

Lerne Seekajak Basics auf dem See, der sich super eignet um Sicherheit für die ersten eigenen Paddelabenteuer zu gewinnen oder buche einen Finetuning Kurs, der dir wichtiges Werkzeug mitgibt, um auch auf dem Fluss oder sogar auf dem offenen Meer paddeln zu können. Egal, ob kurze Trips auf dem See in deiner Nähe oder Langstrecken und  Expeditionen, die Planung von Trips auf dem Meer oder das spielerische Paddeln mit dem Seekajak zwischen Felsen und in den Wellen. Wir begleiten dich dabei!

Alle unsere Coaches “durchpaddelten” mehrere Seekajak – Qualifikationen auf dem Meer und teilen nicht nur die Leidenschaft für den Sport, sondern auch für inspirierendes Coaching. “We make you feel the learning” ist unsere Philosophie.

Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value

As usual, had a great time with Hightide. They never disappoint with their professionalism, responsiveness to the needs of paddlers and they are always good for a laugh. Highly recommended!

Simon Parker

Friendly staff, professional attitude

As a complete stranger to kayaking I did not expect this amount of progress I made in the course of a single day, the topics were carefully selected and built on top of each other, the instructor was easy going and relaxed, without making any compromises to safety.


Private Coaching (3 hours)

Excellent coaching session where I quickly enhanced my technique of turning, apprehend safely a rapid u-turn, optimize my move forward and learn how use the minimum of energy. It is exactly the type of coaching session that I was expecting, in order to get more familiar with my boat and the water element. On the top of that, conditions were perfect and the scenery of the lake is simply magical. Highly recommended.
