BCU Sea Kayak Award Training (formerly known as 3 Star)

From: £140.00

The BCU Sea Kayak Award Training is to prepare for the award assessment. On our courses you will learn all aspects for a successful pass on an assessment and get an action plan at the end of the course.


At Unexplored Scotland, we offer BCU Sea Kayak Award (formerly known as 3 Star Sea Kayak) training in sea kayaking. Please go to the Scottish Canoe Association website to find out more about the syllabus and requirements.

The first day training will comprise in a flat water area in the sea or a sea loch. There you will learn manoeuvre skills, rescues, forward paddling and other sea kayaking skills. The second day will be there to put these skills into practice as part of a small journey. However, if we feel that you are ready for an assessment we will run through that.

We recommend bringing your own kit for this course, especially for the training. However, if you would rather like to hire a kayak or any kit we can arrange this too.

The price includes only the training fee. Please contact us if you require any equipment. We can offer sea kayaks including paddle, spray deck and buoyancy aid.
