Paddlesport - Canoeing & Kayaking

Fancy gliding down a river with the sun on your back and the bird song to keep you company? Would you like to learn how to control your own kayak or canoe, improve your skills or master moving water? All in North Yorkshire or the North East.

Using our fleet of open canoes and kayaks we can offer family picnics to skills training for more challenging expeditions. We provide skills training from complete beginners up to grade 2 moving water and touring in both kayak and canoe, or you can hire a canoe from us for your own expedition!

We are able to offer you certificated training in personal skills from Taster sessions, British Canoeing Personal Performance Start, Discover and Explore Awards, White Water Award and both British Canoeing Foundation Safety and Rescue Training (FSRT) and the Core of Canoe Lifeguards Canoe Safety Test.
