British Canoeing Sea Kayak Leader Awards

Our British Canoeing sea kayak leader training & assessment courses are among the best – for the following reasons:

We make use of the best training venue in the UK – Anglesey in North Wales. The immense variety of tidal open water conditions make the island a perfect environment for moderate- and advanced-level training courses.

We offer only 5-day programs and beyond, well in excess of the minimum required British Canoeing durations. Why?
The feedback we receive from our students tells us that we offer an enhanced course quality, with time to develop and review skills during the training program.

Training & assessment courses are directed by Nick Cunliffe – a qualified British Canoeing Level 5 sea kayak Coach and National Trainer since 1999, with a comparable experience in white water kayaking and surfing.

Nick is active and experienced, with a strong desire to share and develop his students’ skills. He has been leading sea kayak groups in open water tidal conditions for over 25 years, and has worldwide expedition & coaching experience.

Nick has run an immense number of training courses at these levels during the last twenty years, with a high percentage of clients progressing to a successful future assessment.

We are highly competitive – especially for our 5-day training courses, at a daily cost per student of only £70.
