British Canoeing Coastal Sea Kayak Award. Course dates

The Coastal Sea Kayak award is suitable for any paddler who wants to improve their decision making and paddling skills while having an enjoyable and safe time at sea. The award demonstrates you can plan and undertake journeys on the sea in a sea kayak or specific sit on tops in moderate water conditions.

Dates of our British canoeing (B.C) Coastal Sea Kayak Award courses are here.

Email us for additional dates.

1:1 assessments are possible.

We can also arrange an assessment on our Jersey Kayak Trail Intermediate or Advanced 5 day courses.

This award is at a similar level to the B.C Sea Kayak leader (moderate water) award but does not include assessment of your leadership skills and experience. There is also the option for paddlers using suitable sea touring sit-on-top kayaks to obtain this award.

This is an excellent course to develop your knowledge, skills and to benchmark yourself against an internationally recognised standard. Plus, the Coastal Sea Kayak award is a perfect option for anyone who may be aiming to become a Sea Kayak Leader.

The great news is that you can be assessed by a single examiner. There is no longer need any prerequisites or the need to attend a training course and you can work through the assessment syllabus via your own action plan. Once you feel you are ready, you can then get assessed.
