From Zero to Hero in One Weekend!
The courses takes place over a weekend and run from 10am – 4pm on Saturday and Sunday. We offer courses in the Coal Harbour in Dun Laoghaire where there is parking and access to a sheltered harbour surrounded by all kinds of marine activity. We also run courses at the Kayaking.ie base at the beautiful Royal Canal Amenity Centre just outside Lucan where we have parking and changing facilities. The areas are 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.
You will finish the weekend with a kayaking.ie course completion certificate 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.
