Our two day kayak course will take you to Level 2 Standard. Friendly, fun, qualified instructors, all of the gear and equipment is provided for you and the course takes place in some luverly parts of Dublin!
The course runs from 10am – 4pm on Saturday and Sunday and takes place at the Kayaking.ie base at the beautiful Royal Canal Amenity Centre just outside Lucan where we have parking and changing facilities. The area is very scenic and tranquil and the flat, calm water is perfect for starting out. We will start with the basics and your skills will improve over the weekend. On the afternoon of the second day we head to the Liffey River which a few minutes away so you can try out river kayaking. Who knows who might even go down the weir at Lucan! (if you want to).
You will finish the weekend at Level 2 standard which means you can join a club (we can advise you of clubs that might be suitable) or come kayaking with us on our river trips (or both).
The course is great fun and is suitable for those coming alone (we are very friendly!) as well as those coming with friends/family etc.
We provide all of the gear and equipment for you.
