    Default Sea kayaking introduction courses

    MY husband would like to start doing this and I wondered if anyone had done any "introduction" or beginner courses in the Christchurch area.


    I have found a few on line but wondered if anyone had any personal recommendations.

    Not helpful for Christchurch, but we sea kayaked for the first time in Marlborough sound a couple of years ago, on a day-long trip with one of the tourist oriented companies.

    There's not much too it.

    Maybe try a lonely planet/rough guide recommended company.

    I was looking into these as well.

    You could try the local adventure racing shops, or try the Coast2Coast forums as you need to hold a qualification to be able to race that.


    That includes self recovery.
