 Kayaking on the river

Our run the rapids sessions are perfect for an exhilarating family day out. The session starts on the lake and moves onto the river once you're ready. We use sit on top kayaks as it means you can get off and on much easier. 

On the river you will be introduced to more advanced concepts like breaking in and out of moving water and helped to improve your boat control. The fact that we use sit on top type kayaks makes this activity accessible to people who have had no previous experience of paddling whitewater or even a kayak. This is a guaranteed get wet activity and the likelihood of capsizing the kayak is high but there is NO risk of getting stuck inside the craft.




Coached sessions  

We are able to offer kayaking for the more experienced kayakers or those wishing to be coached to a higher level. This can be adapted to suit your needs it would be best to contact us so we can make the best plan for you/your group.

We often use various rivers depending upon your previous experience.

A fun and exciting kayaking experience using sit on top kayak to negotiate the grade 2+ rapids at Llandysul which have produced world class slalom paddlers. You will be given coaching by one of our BCU qualified guides on the lake where you will acquire all the skills you need including forward, reverse and turning strokes to enable you to make the right moves on the white water.
