Our Sea Kayak courses are suitable for adults and teenagers to improve their skill and knowledge of the maritime environment.
Your teacher is passionate about nature and the marine environment and has many years of experience. He will share his knowledge about wildlife and plant-life. The courses are a great way to become autonomous in sea kayak, and to learn safety at sea and sea kayak techniques. The content is based on the French Federation of Kayaking and Canoe (FFCK) basic level training, however the teaching is adapted to each individual level and interest. The area offers an amazing range of paddling possibilities depending on the weather on the day.
