Kayaking Taster in the Cairngorms

If you’ve always fancied giving kayaking a go, our kayak taster sessions are the perfect way to try out this fun paddle sport in the safety of our purpose-built pond. You’ll be kitted out with everything you need for a fun experience on the water.

We’ll teach you how to paddle and maneuver your kayak, with some fun games to help you build your skill and confidence on the water. Our range of kayaks suit paddlers from age 8 upwards to those that are 6-foot plus. At the end of your session, you’ll have the opportunity for an exciting finale with a slide down the seal launch.
