Open canoes are the perfect introduction to water sports. Their design makes them more stable than kayaks, and much less intimidating for novice paddlers.
After an initial safety briefing, participants will be given an in-depth introduction to the equipment they will be using during the session. Participants will then receive demonstration before moving on to the activity where they will be instructed throughout.
