Capricorn Seakayaking offers a range of sea kayak courses, from recreational courses for those wishing to learn more about sea kayaking, to nationally recognised Australian Canoeing award courses. As an approved National Training Provider (NTP) for Australian Canoeing we can help you on your journey to gaining formal qualifications and working as a professional in the sea kayaking industry. We specialise in Coastal Guide (Sit-On-Top) and Sea Instructor awards.

 

Whether you are a beginner looking to learn new skills, or seeking formal sea kayaking qualifications, we can help.

The Coastal Guide (Sit-On-Top) award is designed for emerging outdoor leaders and school teachers with some personal paddling experience. Gain the skills and experience necessary to safely manage groups of novices in sit-on-top kayaks in coastal conditions. The course is traditionally 4 days for beginners, but can be amended to 3 days for those with ample prior kayaking experience (please discuss with us prior to enrolment).

The Sea Instructor award is designed for those who wish to become professional sea kayak guides and instructors. Candidates must be able to successfully model the Sea Skills set, and be comfortable paddling in fresh wind conditions (17-21 knots) with seas up to 1.5m. During the course we take an in-depth look at the more technical aspects of paddling, a range of rescue and towing techniques, rolling, surf skills as well as weather, tides and navigation.

Undertaking Sea Skills training is a useful way to improve your personal paddling skills, knowledge and confidence; or can be building block to attaining a guide or instructor award. Refine your paddling strokes, learn about different rescue and towing techniques and gain confidence paddling in small waves. The course also covers navigation, communication and weather interpretation relevant to sea kayaking.
