Sea Kayak Course

At Kayak-Ibiza we believe it vital to participate in a sea kayak course when considering going kayaking. “Why?” you may ask… because in a sea kayak course you will learn how to have a safe, enjoyable and comfortable experience on the water.

Depending on what you plan to do, there are different course levels to suit your needs.

We have a beginners course to introduce you to the paddling world, where you can learn how to effectively control your kayak and learn how to have an enjoyable trip out on the water.

The next course “security” is to evolve our paddling skills from level 1. This course is good if we want to begin making longer trips or go solo paddling. We focus on improving our technique, self and assisted rescue techniques.

The third course is to dive even deeper into the sea kayaking world. Where we look to perfect our technique, learn about extra safety equipment and how to react in different incidences.
