As the demand for kayaking experiences expanded, we recognized the need to offer comprehensive training and qualifications to cater to paddlers of all levels.

To support our training initiatives, we have developed state-of-the-art facilities that cater to the diverse needs of our students. Our training rooms provide a comfortable and conducive environment for theoretical instruction, while our kit washing and drying rooms ensure that equipment remains in optimal condition.

At Sea Kayak Academy, we understand the importance of having access to quality gear.

Our knowledgeable staff is always on hand to provide expert advice and guidance, ensuring that you find the perfect gear for your kayaking adventures.

Recognizing the allure of the great outdoors, we have also created a campsite for individuals who wish to immerse themselves fully in the kayaking experience. Our campsite provides a serene and picturesque setting, allowing you to connect with nature and build lasting memories with fellow kayakers.
