Paddle explore

The Explore Award accredited by British Canoeing gives you ownership of your paddling journey and enables you to become independent on the water, go on self-guided paddling adventures and know how to control and manage your craft to stay safe on the water. Working with one of our coaches you will learn to make confident choices and decisions, recognising your ability to independently paddle your chosen craft in a sheltered water environment.

If you’ve already completed our Paddle Start Award or Paddle Discover Award, want to develop your skills before moving on to Personal Performance Awards, or want to build your paddling confidence, the Explore Award is for you. 

Coaching is provided by our expert team and we provide all the equipment needed for the session; canoes/kayaks/stand up paddle boards, paddles, buoyancy aids, wetsuits, cags and helmets. Alternatively you may bring your own equipment if you wish.
