Basic sea kayaking for beginners
Have you thought about learning to kayak? This is a good opportunity if you are in Stockholm. Take a day and do it! Experienced instructors will teach you the basics and give you some good advice to enjoyable and safe kayaking.
The course will start with one hour theory at base camp in Gräddö, Roslagen. You will get a brief on safety, rules at sea and nature protection. You will learn about the kayak, it’s equipment and how to pack it – and how to get in and out of the kayak in a safe way. Experiencing nature this close to the water surface brings you nearer to the wildlife and makes you feel closer to it all.
You don’t have to worry about shallow waters or cope with ropes, engines and all the gear on other types of boats. You can focus on nature and at the same time get some exercise. After a small kayak trip to some secluded bay you eat lunch together, on the rocks. Then you will practice rescue techniques, including how to rescue others. The course contains all the elements required for the Euro Paddle Pass level yellow.
