boarding and marine life identification too. Paddling locations will be
within the Copper Coast area, typically Boatstrand, Garrarus and

Introductory Kayak Courses for older teens and adults
If you are 15 or over and are interested in developing your paddling
skills the best way to do this is to try an introductory kayaking
course. Seapaddling.com have two basic courses on offer, either a one
or two-day course. These are ideal for first time paddlers to learn
kayaking as no previous kayaking or canoeing experience is necessary.
The courses incorporate paddling techniques, weather and tides, safety
procedures, choosing a kayak and environmental awareness. There are
both practical and theoretical elements and these take place in a
learning environment that is relaxing and fun.
