First Year

Anyone taking our Beginners Kayaking Course, will start with a sit-on-top kayak which is a high buoyancy boat and will be taught some basic strokes.  Once you progress, you’ll be amazed at how versatile and manouverable a kayak can be. You will be running rivers in no time!

We plan to take all our students on a Kayak trip;  the lakes our students have kayaked include; Ballinlough Lake, Laught Lake, Coagula Lake & Kiltullagh Lake. Our river runs include the Clare River (Dalgan Bridge to Milltown Bridge) & Suck Valley way, from (Donamon Bridge to Castlecoote Bridge). It is truly great to be able to use the wonderful lakes & rivers on our doorstep.

The following are pictures of our 2017/18 first years on their kayaking trip.
