Training Courses

Kayak Essentials sea kayak courses are based in North Wales, one of the UK’s best destinations and a wonderful place to enjoy a high quality sea kayaking experience.

We provide skill development, safety and rescue training, navigation courses and expedition preparation. Courses are directed by Nick Cunliffe – an active and experienced BCU level 5 sea kayak coach.

Training days are structured to meet your own sea kayaking plans – a future self-led trip, canoe club leadership, preparation for a BCU qualification or simply development of your own personal skills and experience.

We also offer white water kayak coaching and BCU coach education training / assessment courses – in North Wales, throughout the UK and overseas. Check out our inland kayak coaching page for further details.
