Course description

New for 2021, 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. On the advanced course, we look at paddling in tide races, planning longer journeys, crossings and Surf.

We also work towards the new British Canoeing Coastal Sea or Advanced Kayak Award (the personal skills part of the old 4 & 5 star awards) training skills in swell, tide, surf and wind. The award once the appropriate standard has been achieved. All this 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.



Depending on the group, weather and tide, we will stay on one of the following campsites:

Camping Municipal DU LANNIC de Camaret sur Mer
Address: Rue du Grouanoc’h, 29570 Camaret-sur-Mer, France

Camping la Ferme du Bout du Monde de Plogoff
Address: 3 Impasse de Kerguidy Izella, Kerguidy-Izella, 29770 Plogoff, France

Our 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.
