Kayaking

Kayaking in Devon

The sheltered lake at Colehayes Park is the perfect venue for beginners to learn the basics of this highly enjoyable sport and also for improving groups and individuals to hone their skills.

Once kitted out correctly our highly experienced and qualified BCU instructors will introduce the group to the Kayak and what to do in the event of a capsize. We aim to get pupils onto the lake as soon as possible to allow experimentation with how the craft moves through the water and how the paddle effects that movement.

Tips for improving paddle strokes are introduced and practiced using a variety of fun challenges and games until everyone is confidently navigating the lake and its islands.

More experienced kayakers can improve their strokes, rescue skills and work towards recognised NGB awards or moving water skills in readiness for a River Dart day trip or expedition. For those wishing to move onto White Water paddling or just relish a challenge we also run Eskimo Rolling and self-rescue skills sessions.

At the end of the activity there is always time for a swim and jumping if you’re brave enough!
