Sydney Harbour Kayaks - Kayak, Surfski and Stand-Up Paddle Board LESSONS
At Sydney Harbour Kayaks, our instructors love introducing people to kayaking, surf ski paddling, and stand-up paddleboarding.
We are also keen to see you progress and take your paddling to the next level.
We recommend you start with our free lesson program (you can do six hours of free tuition!), then come back for some private tuition to work on your intermediate and advanced skills.
Saturdays 9am to 12noon
The ideal way to get into kayaking or brush up on the main paddle strokes. This is a fun and practical session, focused on paddling technique.
You will learn how to control your kayak, turn effectively, paddle forward efficiently, move sideways, and brace to prevent capsize.
Saturdays 12:30pm to 3:30pm
Not sure what to do if you fall out of your kayak?
This lesson is for you! Practice capsizing your kayak in a safe environment, with your instructor right beside you. Learn assisted rescues, self rescues, how to stabilize your kayak, and how to deal with different weather conditions.
Sundays 9.30 am to 12.30pm
Embrace the spirit of freedom and exploration as you learn a whole new style of kayaking: Surf ski paddling.
Combining the adventure of sea kayaking, the speed of surf ski paddling, and the thrill of catching swell and boat wake or surfing spilling waves, freeride kayaking dares you to set your course, redefine boundaries, and not be limited to one style of paddling.
FREE Stand-Up Paddleboard Lesson
Sundays 9am-11am (Currently unavailable) Only Private Lesson
Get a head start in the fastest growing water sport in the world: learn stand-up paddle boarding for free!
Launch confidently, glide across the water, and carve out turns with the help of our pro SUP instructor. If you’re up for it, practice falling sideways and getting back on your board, so you have all the skills to hire a SUP next time.
Enjoy the benefits of one-on-one attention to ensure you improve your skills, learn new strokes, and paddle like a pro. Private Lessons can be 100% customised to suit your needs.
