Our ‘First Step’ courses are aimed at newcomers and are an ideal way to get a taste of life afloat. By the end of this First Step Canoeing Skills course you should be paddling your canoe confidently in sheltered water, have a good understanding of the principles of safe paddling and be ready to move on to the next level.

The day will be spent on the water enjoying a guided journey among the Islands on Strangford Lough. The final destination will be weather dependent.

Skills covered include boat selection and fit, forward paddling, turning, steering and balancing, and safety skills, such as equipment selection, what to carry afloat, what to wear and planning simple trips on the sea. We can also offer advice on equipment purchase and joining a club.
