Do you want to safely get out on the sea or large lakes and have great fun?

Maybe you want to explore and investigate our coastal areas, paddle to areas only accessible to small craft, quietly view wildlife or enjoy the journey in excellent surroundings; maybe travelling with equipment to wild camp or enjoy food and company outdoors. Sea kayaks are excellent vehicles for journeying on larger expanses of water and our wonderful sea. They are efficient journeying craft in which equipment can be carried to out of the way places. Whether you are new to paddlesport, wish to be guided on a journey or you wish to develop your personal paddling skills or are travelling as an individual, group or family then Wild River has the experience and fully qualified British Canoe Union coaches and instructors to get you safely on your way.

As with all water-based activity there are key safety and equipment considerations: where better to learn about safe kayaking than with Wild River in the Lake District with its vast array of rivers, lakes and coastline.

Wild River provides two specific sea kayaking courses that focus on learning how to safely have fun and journey with sea kayaks. However, Wild River is also able to generate a bespoke training or journeying package for you and your family or friends. All sea kayaking courses are run by British Canoe Union coaches who are fully qualified in the river, lake and sea environments.
