Discover the exhilaration and adventure of white water kayaking in a fun 2 days. If you’ve seen people crashing their way down rapids in little plastic kayaks, and wondered how it feels, now’s your chance!
This course is aimed at anybody who wants to try white water kayaking. If you want two days to move you from your first paddle strokes on the loch, onto your first rapids, then this is the course for you.
This course will give you a chance to try paddling down a grade 1 or 2 river. We hope that at the end of the two days you’ll share our love of all things white water kayaking.
To get the most out of this course you should be confident in and around water, but there’s no need to have paddled a kayak before.
Capsizing and swimming is part of learning, so please come prepared to get wet.
Time spent in the pool, loch and river on the first day will prepare you for a river trip on the second. This course will introduce you to essential paddling skills, equipment, safety procedures and an understanding of moving water. By the end of the course you will have had a taste of paddling on moving water
At the start of the course we’ll help you choose boats and equipment. Then we’ll head down to a local loch, or gently moving river to start learning how to control the boat. On the next day we’ll paddle a section of river, tackling our first waves and rapids. We have a wide range of local rivers choose from, including the Spey, Nairn, Ness and Findhorn.
We’ll spend time coaching and developing your personal paddling. We’ll also look at how to paddle safely as a group.
Glenmore Lodge has a purpose made kayak rolling pool, which may be available in the evening. It’s a great place to develop your water confidence and rescue skills.
