1) FREE Learn to Kayak Lessons:

Start your paddling experience safely and comfortably with a Free 3 hour paddling session from Sydney Harbour Kayaks' Professional Paddling Staff.

The Learn to Kayak Lesson is our simplest introductory course, where we will focus on establishing the basic concepts that will allow you to be self-sufficient and efficient in your paddling.

We will cover many important aspects of paddling including safety and basic strokes, that will allow you to learn to manoeuvre your kayak (ie keep it going straight!) and allow you to enjoy the process of paddling.

If you do not have your own kayak then we will be teaching this lesson in sea kayaks.
