Sea Kayaking

Sea kayak coachingNorthumberland Sea Kayak Courses and Coaching in the North East.

Sea kayaking Northumberland’s coast is arguably the best sea kayaking in the North East of England and beyond.

Come and enjoy a journey of exploration of the sea.

Introduction to Sea Kayaking

If you’re not sure how much you’ll enjoy sea kayaking I offer a one day Taster Day or a two day Introduction Course. These will give you the basics needed to start your journey into the world of sea kayaking.  By using the very best locations available I will ensure your voyage of discovery is safe and inspiring.  I understand the needs of the novice sea kayaker and will work with you to exceed your expectations

These courses can be organised at times to suit you, so if you’re visiting Northumberland and would like to book please get in touch.

Intermediate Sea Kayaking

This course is designed for people who are already confident in a sea kayak and would like to develop their skills further.  By using the very best locations available I will ensure your voyage of discovery is safe and inspiring.  This course is pitched at BCU 3 star Sea Kayak Level, so is ideal for you if you are training for this award.

These courses can be organised at times to suit you, so if you’re visiting Northumberland and would like to book please get in touch.

Guided Trips and Coaching

As a BCU Level 5 Sea Kayak Coach, I organise custom designed courses for individuals and small groups – whether you are new to sea kayaking or an intermediate/advanced kayaker. We’ll tailor a trip to suit your experience and what you’d like to see.

The coast of Northumberland offers something for every sea kayaker.  We can relax and enjoy the cliffs, arches and caves around St Abbs.  We can take the challenge of open crossings and tide races around the Farne Island, Bass Rock and the Isle of May.  We can enjoy the sandy beaches and castles of Holy Island and the historic Northumberland shoreline.  We can float amongst the rafts of puffins, guillemots and seals.

Although I am based in the north of England, borders of Scotland and Cumbria, if you’d like to venture further afield we can arrange that too!

    Hi Kim
    Bit like Ron cuffling. I have a sot and plan to do some kayak fishing around the Northumberland coast but would like to get some professional advice before venturing out. I had a day out with Coquet Shorebase in the estuary which was really good. I live near Northumberland coast so any time from now to spring. I can fit in to whatever days you are booked to go out.
