Kayaking for Beginners - 4 hours
This course is for everyone who loves the idea of getting into kayaking and anyone who would like to have their basic skills enhanced by an expert. Kayak instructor Scott Rawstorne has written paddling guidebooks for 4 Australian states and has kayaked in more than 400 locations in 8 countries.
Scott takes you through everything you need to know to paddle a kayak safely and efficiently. An on-land theory session is followed by a practical skills lesson and an hour-long paddle at the end to put into practice what you have learned.
