Gordon Keddie, Discovery Kayaking

    Join us for progressive coaching and guiding, specialising in Sea Kayaking Courses. Whatever your aspirations you’ll find what your looking for here.

    From the start, all our courses focus on the desires of our clients; as individuals, couples, a group of peers or a club. We’ll help you achieve your goals whether that’s taking the next step up to stretch your limits in a tide race, finding familiarity in an unknown location or fulfilling a dream expedition.

    Working in the north west of Scotland as a Sea Kayak Guide in the season of 2018 was my first professional step into coaching and guiding. From here I worked my way through the British Canoeing syllabus to become a Sea kayak leader Provider. Prior to this I had a first class degree in Exercise Physiology and Biomechanics and had always been involved in the leisure industry in some capacity. In addition I was involved with a couple and chairman of one Canoe club where the passion to see members develop and grow spurred me on to develop “discovery kayaking”.
