Winter 2023 News: After bouncing back from the pandemic with great support from paddlers from across the globe, we have seen the market place change towards more bespoke closed group solutions for coaching and guiding. Going forward we have reduce the range of our open offerings and offer an early bird price. Our base offer will be coaching/guiding only, with other services sourced locally, where by Gene17Kayaking acts as a facilitator arrange the booking of ‎tertiary services.  In 2024 we'll look to widen our collaboration with leading paddling coaches at our core destinations.
