Personal Sea Kayak Coaching and Trips

Personal Coaching and Guided Trips

As a British Canoeing 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.  These are normally between one and five days catering for all abilities, from absolute beginner to the most advanced sea kayaker. Customising means there is rarely such a thing as a typical course. Although I have a maximum group size of six, this can often be smaller enabling us to match abilities for maximum enjoyment. Coaching and skill improvements days are a speciality, and can be booked at times to suit you. The coast of Northumberland offers something for every sea kayaker.

Course fees are £190 per day for one person, £140 each for two, £120 each for three or £100 each for four or more .


Whatever you wish to achieve, contact me at to discuss your needs.  Remember, I can arrange your BC Three, Four and Five star Training and Assessment courses, and your BC Coastal Navigation and Tidal Planning course.

    I have done some sea kayaking – 4 day intro with Wilderness Scotland about 4 years ago, another 4 days with someone else, also in Scotland, 3 years ago, plus some evenings at Ashington around the same time. But nothing since then. I have booked onto a 6 day trip in July, and am starting to panic slightly! I wonder if I could arrange some private/small group tuition/revision with you? I am based in Newcastle, and generally more available during the week than at weekends.

    Looking for a two day, mid week course as a complete open water novice. Have my own boat etc but require the experience and confidence to explore the open water. Dates between 13/15th July and 20th/24th July. Would be completely open to travelling to any location suggested. Cheers, Dom.

    Hi Kim, I called and left a message. Looking for a personal session for two male adults (no sea kayaking experience and no kit). Looking for a full days paddling/instruction/sea kayaking (from around 11am), a one day course somewhere between 11-23 September. Possibly somewhere on the coast not too far from Newcastle. I am currently working overseas and based in Glasgow when I am home – I am setting this up as a treat for my mate who is based near Sheffield. The plan is for us to get to Newcastle the night before we paddle, so we can be fairly close to the start point. Can you offer us a one day course during this timeframe?

    Hi Kim
    My husband is 40 on 5th May and has said he’d love to have a go at sea kayaking. He has done some canoe instruction before. Do you have any availability in May. We live in Morpeth. Thanks. Gillian
