No experience is necessary as each session involves full instruction, a safety briefing (where you will learn how to kayak) and all equipment. Participants must be at least 8 years of age (12 years of age for night kayaking).

- Try paddling while standing (gondola style)
- Rafting in a line and walking on the kayak backs
- Pairing up and swapping kayaks
- Kayak soccer, surfing and basketball!
Just ask our friendly instructors!
