Sit-on-top Kayak Club
Jersey Kayak Club is open to anyone who has completed our courses and enjoys Sit-on-top and sit inside style sea kayaking in Jersey. If you have not completed our courses you must have previous kayaking experience to join the trips.
The club enables you to get afloat more easily and also to paddle when it suits you.
Kayaking for recreational paddlers who want to enjoy and explore our fantastic coastline.
Joining (currently free of charge) gives you the opportunity to:
Take part in regular Sit-on-top kayak trips with other like-minded people who have completed our courses and are of a similar standard. If you prefer to paddle a sit-inside sea kayak that is also okay. We have many different designs of sea kayaks to choose from.
Benefit from reduced prices on our “club” sessions.
