Intro to Kayaking

Our classic kayak lesson is a great way to gain the skills you need to pilot these solo and tandem sit-on kayaks. Lessons are suitable for complete beginners, or people returning to kayaking from a break. Let our guides introduce you to the basics of moving and controlling your kayak, get a feel for the boat and how it responds to the environment, then maybe learn a rescue technique or two. We'll also take a short journey around the Tumbleton Lake and enjoy the stunning Cragside landscape from the water. Lessons are around 90 minutes long + changing time.
