Customized trips are also available for Intermediate and advanced kayakers on request. Flowing from Mount Fishtail, this picturesque Lower Seti passes through deep gorges with mountain views and white sandy beaches. The warm water is ideal for learners and the gradually increasing size of rapids lends itself perfectly to our kayak school. Day 1: We travel direct to the Seti River to begin the course with an introduction to kayaking in a safe calm environment, out on the slow flowing and large pools of the Seti River near Damauli. The day will include safety demonstrations and learning paddle techniques, balancing and steering kayaks, and an introduction to assisted and eskimo rolls. Day 2: Today we refresh your new knowledge before putting you in control of the kayak to test your skills. As we paddle gently down stream through gentle grade 1 and -2 rapids, there will be plenty of opportunity to hone your balancing and steering skills, all under the watchful guidance of our experienced instructors. At the lunch stop you will learn some basic swift water rescue skills to add to your safety knowledge. Day 3: We paddle down river encountering gentle rapids to gain more experience in the river environment. After lunch we have a focused skills session in the safe environment of a quiet river eddie. Day 4: Time to hit the rapids! Using all your new skills we will run the river’s more challenging rapids, encountering some bigger waves and longer rapid systems. Your Instructors will be with you at all times to demonstrate correct lines and to help you increase your skill and confidence levels.
