Kayaking for beginners

If you want to take to the water for canoeing or kayaking we have the answer. We work with Herts Young Mariners Base and Edmonton Canoe Group plus provide our own sessions, so that there's something for everyone.


If you're under 17 and are keen to learn more about canoeing and kayaking Herts Young Mariners Base is a great place to start. We also run a Paddlesport Development Programme which you can join once you reach an appropriate standard to join between levels 2 - 5.


Lee Valley White Water Centre lake is perfect to learn the basics of canoeing and kayaking with our specialist instructors. Once you become proficient enough you can progress to our moving water sessions.

Edmonton Canoe Group run adult sessions at Herts Young Mariners Base on Monday and Saturday.
