Kayaking Activity Courses for Children in Jersey 2014
Have fun kayaking both on and in the water with Jersey Kayak Adventures, the island’s British Canoe Union (BCU), Adventuremark, EcoActive, and Green Tourism GOLD approved centre. JKA also won the Jersey Enterprise Environment award.
Our sit-on-top kayaks are versatile and fun craft which allow rapid progression and build confidence. We also offer the opportunity to gain BCU Paddle-Power certificates.
To encourage children’s maximum enjoyment we introduce young people to paddle sports by using correctly sized youth wetsuits, kayaks and paddles. Our courses operate with a narrow age range, so your child gets a better experience with other like minded children.
All courses operate with qualified and experienced kayak staff afloat, who have undergone Police checks. Each course aims to operate from different venues during the week to allow for weather conditions and give a different experience of the coastline. Transport is not supplied. Maximum of 10 children with two staff.
Children should be water confident and expect to get wet! All equipment is supplied –including wetsuits.
