The Seapoint Canoe Centre offers all types of canoeing activities and canoeing instruction:
Seapoint Canoe Centre specialises in working with children, young people, adults and people with disabilities , as we introduce them to the world of canoeing. We achieve this through team building sessions, or through individuals coming onto our regularly run canoe school sessions. If it is personal tuition you would prefer, we can offer that too.
Each canoe session is run under the supervision of our BCU coaching team. So canoeing in a safe environment is our main aim, with skills and fun being developed from this environment. This coaching team are all police checked and work under the centres, save from harm, children’s policy and are qualified to operate on the sea and inland waters.
As a canoe centre, we are vetted by KCC Outdoor Education Unit and approved by the BCU and the “adventure activity license authority” (AALA) who inspect us on a regular bases.
