Kayaking for beginners

Guided sea kayaking at Runswick Bay in conjunction with East Barnby Outdoor Centre.

  • Booking essential

Learn to paddle a sit on top kayak and see the coast from a different perspective. Unfavourable sea conditions won't put an end to our fun, we will play in the waves with surf or body boards instead.
