Adult and Teenager Courses

**Currently, we are not offering any Learn to Kayak Courses. We may be running courses at a later date in Summer 2020. If interested in being notified of an upcoming course, please drop us an email at info@getwest.ie**

We are running Learn-to-Kayak courses in 5 week blocks throughout the summer.  Classes start at 6:30 pm and finish at 9pm for the 5 sessions spread over a 5 week period.

Click on the ‘Book Now’ button to book your place.

Both adults & teenagers are welcome to take part and beginners are most welcome. There is also no need to be able to swim.

Our Learn to Kayak Courses give you the training required to kayak safely and competently on flat water Grade I rivers, as a member of a group being led, and to assist in basic rescues.

All of the participants on our Learn To Kayak courses will have the option of applying for a Euro Paddle Pass Certificate at the end of the course. This is an internationally recognised qualification and will cost extra.

Keep a close eye on our Upcoming Events section for more upcoming courses and trips, or subscribe to our newsletter at the bottom of this page to make sure you don’t miss out.

"Well worth a visit! Group of ten of us went on the Limerick City historical kayak tour. The guys working here are lovely, gave us lots of info on the city and made us play hilarious games. We all jumped off the side of the river after our trip! It was great fun!"
