Sea Safety Session
Do you have your own kayak or want to buy one? Do you need to increase your skills and confidence on the water? This 3 hour, basic level training course will introduce you to kayaking and how to be safe on the water. This includes how to rescue yourself and others, what you should take with you and what to do in an emergency. It can take place at one of our venues on the Lizard or Hayle or we can come to a venue of your choice. Get in touch to organise a bespoke course as these cannot be booked online.
