Your experience begins with a safety briefing and an outline of basic handling techniques from your expert instructor. Then go out onto the water in your one-person kayak for an exhilarating river trip through the Victorian Jephson Gardens and into the nature reserve. This is followed by games specifically designed to make you feel more at ease and competent in the water - a fun way to end a satisfying experience. Kayaking is one of the fastest growing watersports in the country and can't be beaten for the sheer pleasure of powering yourself silently across the water.
