Take a Course

Little training is needed to get on the water, however if you have never been before we recommend you take a beginner course. The UK has many centres which can provide friendly, safe and fun tuition. Why not give them a call or go on-line and find a course?

Beginner courses start at around £20. All equipment is provided, and the course will teach you all the basics, sometimes they include how to get out of your canoe should it turn over (capsize) so make sure you have a set of dry clothes.
