Kayak Taster Session (School + Youth)


Share on

An introduction to kayaking with lots of fun and games!

Our most popular one off session, particularly with scout/guide groups and other youth organisations. Why not come kayaking instead of one of your regular evening meetings?

Your qualified instructors will introduce your group to the equipment, and then it’s on to the water! The group will learn the basics of how to control their kayaks, play lots of games to use their new skills, and usually take a short trip up the river.

When can you book?

March to end of October. Contact us if you would like an activity outside this period and we will try to accomodate you.

During the main season (Easter to October) we are open 7 days a week, and when daylight allows we take evening bookings (approx mid April to mid September).

The taster session normally lasts for 1 and a half hours, but if you would like a longer session that’s no problem, just get in touch for a quote.


Recommended minimum age: approx 10.

Maximum number: 8

A minimum fee applies equivalent to 8 people.

Larger groups can be accommodated with mixed activity sessions e.g. canoe and kayak at the same time.

Staff or leaders are welcome to participate, but it is not essential as all sessions are run by our experienced team of coaches. We allow 1 leader to participate for free per 8 students, subject to availability of boats. Special needs groups may require staff participation on the water, or a greater ratio of our staff – please discuss at time of booking if relevant.


At Warwick you can take a short paddle to see the castle from the river, but as you’ll go straight out onto the river, we can only take groups from age 10 upwards, and a maximum of 8 children.
