Kayaking Courses on the South Coast
Kayaking & Canoeing is the best way to see the amazing waterways of the UK. Enjoy the wide open space, calm waters and close encounters with wildlife. On our kayaking courses you’ll improve your technique and increase your confidence. On more intermediate courses there are opportunities to tackle waves, moving water and wind for a real adrenaline buzz. Never paddled before? Check out our get started courses.
Private groups can book bespoke Kayaking trips, introduction, courses or awards with Liquid Logistics. You’ll get top level Kayak coaching, all the kit and expertise to run your Kayaking experience. Book your very own private coach here.
We operate mainly along the Hampshire and Dorset coastline and offer a range of Kayaking courses, introductions and trips, that we hope will inspire you. Get in touch with Liquid Logistics.
Discover Touring Kayaks
Learn all about river and harbour paddling whilst paddling along the beautiful South Coast. Picking up basic touring skills, you’ll feel confident heading out to enjoy adventures on local rivers and harbours with other like minded paddlers. There will be many opportunities for coaching on hints and tips and relaxing to enjoy the scenery and experience.
We do recommend that you have some paddling experience and fitness, as a full day can be a lot of activity for the complete beginner.
Kayak Explorer Day
Touring Kayaking in Dorset offers us the opportunity to explore stunning open harbours and sheltered rivers. On this trip you’ll undertake a journey in either Poole or Christchurch Harbour, where there will be many opportunities for testing your skills and receiving some coaching to improve your paddling.
We’ll meet in the Poole or Christchurch area and as a group, will decide an appropriate venue to suit the group and conditions on the day. We do recommend that you have some previous paddling experience (Discover day or half day tour) as a full day can be a lot of activity for the complete beginner.
British Canoeing - PPA Touring
New to 2019!
From January 2019 onwards we are pleased to announce that we will be running the new British Canoeing personal performance Touring award in both Canoes and Kayaks.
This is the award that’ll replace the BC 3* Touring award and will allow greater opportunities for paddlers to gain experience, training and a certificate relatable to their current performance.
Discover White Water Kayaking
Over the winter months we team up with South Coast Canoes to offer white water kayaking trips on the River Dart. Meeting at the River Dart Country park we’ll have a quick chat with the group and depending on group experience and water levels, we’ll head out onto the Dart Loop or Lower section. This is a full day in white water kayaks going through skills and flows, experience is essential.
Went on an intro to sea kayaking. Our instructor Leander gave clear and concise instructions when we took to the water we had a fantastic time. We paused occasionally to take in new skills and tips. By the end, we were truly comfortable in our kayaks. I had never been in a kayak before but now can’t wait to do it again.
"Sea kayaking training"
I attended a sea day and a kayak rolling course. Both days were very well planned, good equipment supplied with excellent coaching and guiding and tailored to the group’s skill and experience level. Very happy, and I have already rebooked for further training courses.
"Rolling a kayak!"
I spent 2 hours learning how to roll a kayak. The instructor gave us clear instructions and was very helpful, spending time with everyone, making sure we all got to grips with the technique.
"A great day out learning new skills"
My friend and I joined a Sea Kayak Explorer Day. Our instructor Steve took us on an enjoyable trip past Old Harry Rocks which gave us the opportunity to try out some more challenging conditions and exercises. We felt that Steve’s affable and engaging character enabled the group to relax and enjoy themselves whilst benefitting from his experience and guidance. We would certainly recommend this trip to anyone looking to improve their kayaking and enjoy a great day out.
"Excellent as always!"
I have been kayaking with Liquid Logistics for many years now, at a rate of once a year! Every session is fun and I always feel safe. I have complete faith in all the instructors. I always recommend these guys and look forward to paddling with them again next year!
Steve and Chris were super helpful during my rolling session. They were great at tailoring advice and explaining in an easy to understand way.
