About The Kayak Coach
The Kayak Coach specialises in running various canoeing & kayaking courses and lessons. We operate throughout Sussex & Surrey and are happy to travel to customers’ local waters to run sessions. We offer several courses including Kids-only Kayaking, BCU star award courses, and river trips on the Ouse and Cuckmere rivers to name a few. We also offer birthday parties for as many or as few children as you require.
Kids only Kayaking takes place at Cuckmere Haven, just a few miles down the road from Brighton. This is a 2hr kids kayaking experience designed for children between the ages of 8 - 15 years old. It is a great way to exercise and experience a sense of adventure.
During the session, children can expect to learn the basics of paddling and controlling your boat as well as general safety. The session takes place in a very safe, sheltered and shallow boating area. Once the basics are mastered, we'll head off on a short journey along the beautiful Ox-bow lake of Cuckmere Haven through the nature reserve to explore and participate in games and challenges to put your new skills to the test.
Having completed a few kayaking sessions you will be of a competent level of kayaking and we can issue you with a BCU 1 Star award. The BCU 1 Star award is a nationally recognised award and is a clear stepping stone to becoming a paddler. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.
