Private Lesson

(2 customer reviews)


Want to learn to kayak or canoe at your own pace, and at a time to suit you? Then this is the thing for you!

Base price covers the first person, just select how many extra adults and children you would like to bring!



Are you looking to learn to Canoe, Kayak or Paddleboard at your own pace, and at a time to suit you? Or looking to work on a specific skill? Then this is the thing for you!

You will get an hour and a half with your coach to work on whatever skills you like – whether you’d like an introduction to the sport, want to learn how to get the best out of a new boat, need specific help getting through an assessment, or are having trouble mastering a difficult skill.

A private lesson costs £70 for 1 person (60 off peak). You can then add extra people on to your booking at a cost of 20 per extra adult, or 15 per extra child.

We can tailor your session to suit you completely, for example with longer sessions (useful if you are traveling a long way to get to us), or maybe specific boats/skills (e.g. freestyle or sea kayak skills). We can also travel to a more convenient or appropriate location e.g. a white water day trip if you need to work on your moving water skills. (There is an extra charge if we need to travel though). Just give us a call, tell us what you want, and we’ll make sure your session is right for you!

    Had a Private Lesson For 1.5 hours and I don’t feel like I stopped smiling for the whole time and have continued smiling since can not wait to get back out on the water. A great Instructor (thank you Jordan) Great equipment and beautiful surroundings.

    My family and I had a private paddle boarding lesson today and absolutely loved it. We couldn’t have asked for a better instructor than Sam. We all came away feeling that we had learnt what we needed in order to confidently go it alone. We’re already planning our next trip. I would highly recommend to anyone that wants to learn the basics of paddle boarding.
