With so many people purchasing their own kayaks, this is the perfect day on the water to learn new skills to help keep you safe on your sit on top kayak.

Starting the day with a morning of theory, we will go over some basic tidal planning, what to look for when checking the weather forecast along with sea swell and what safety equipment is recommended before heading out on your sit on top kayak.  After lunch, you will have the opportunity to take out your kayak (or use one of ours if you haven't purchased one yet) under the tutelage of one of our qualified sea kayak leaders, learning some basic manoeuvering skills and how to get back on your kayak should you fall off, all whilst enjoying the beautiful Anglesey coastline.

Suitable for complete beginners or people with some basic knowledge who want to learn and develop their knowlege on how to keep safe on the water.

Anglesey Adventures can supply all equipment needed for your sea kayaking session if required.  Get in touch to book your Sit on top safety session with Anglesey Adventures.
