Kids Only Kayaking

Cuckmere Haven Kids Kayaking - The Kayak Coach

We run Kids Only Kayaking sessions throughout the schools holidays from spring until September.

The sessions are all run from Cuckmere Haven, Exceat. The water at Cuckmere is very sheltered, shallow, a great safe environment to have lots of fun while sneaking in some learning. We generally cover the basics of controlling your craft, however if your child is a more experienced paddler we can look at the more advanced skills and strokes.

Once your child has completed 3 or 4 session they should be able to be assessed for their nationally recognised award the British Canoe Union 1 Star award.

All kayaking and safety equipment is supplied at no extra cost. Personal clothing is not supplied.

Group sizes are never more than 8.

For more information or to book some sessions please follow this link.

What about a kid's birthday party? We run birthday parties all year round. Please follow this link for more information.


Kayaking Birthday Parties

Kayak Birthday Parties Sussex - The Kayak Coach


We run birthday parties for all ages, all year round.

Our birthday parties are usually designed as a 2hr fun session with a bit of learning sneaked in. However whatever you want to do we'll try and make happen.

Many people opt for a more relaxing river trip for their birthday celebration.

As with all our courses and experiences we'll supply all kayaking and safety equipment at no extra cost. Person clothing not supplied.

Stand Up Paddle Boarding (SUP)

Stand up paddle boarding (SUP), is one of the fastest growing arms of paddle sport, this is largely down to how easy it is to learn, with beginners becoming comfortable in as little as an hour of training. SUP is a fantastic way to explore the rivers, lakes and costal waters of Sussex and Surrey. SUP also provides a great workout working on your core muscles.

Most of our courses and experiences can be done using a Stand Up Paddle Board by chosing SUP at course registration.

Cycle/Paddle Days Out

Kayak and Cycling Adventure Days

We specialise in kayaking, canoeing and all things paddle sport. One of the most satisfying things about paddling is seeing wonderful countryside whilst travelling at such a peaceful pace. To extend this theme and in association with our friends at Self-Propelled-Sussex (S-P-S), the local guided cycle tour experts, we are offering an adventurous combination of pedalling and Paddling.

The trips are whole day outings with suitable refreshment stops; picnics or especially selected cafe/pubs. As the sun goes down you'll find yourself reflecting the delightful land & water experience you have just completed.

We are currently offering two pedal paddle adventures. Both starting and finishing in Lewes.

Stag & Hen Parties

Stag and Hen Kayak Parties - The Kayak Coach

If you want something different to do for your stag or hen party then a kayaking stag or hen adventure could be just the thing!

We run stag and hen kayaking sessions all year round at Cuckmere Haven, a few miles east of Brighton. We usually recommend a 2hr session of fun and games with a little bit of learning sneaked in.

We make sure you're in control of your kayak or sit-on-top by teaching you some basic manoeuvring and general kayaking skills before making our way along the lake. In no time you'll be racing up and down the lake using your new skills. We'll play a few water based games before (for those who are brave enough) trying a full capsize! There is always an additional task for the stag or hen!!

Many people prefer a slightly more relaxing and civilised approach and opt for one of our river trips for their stag or hen party.
