The RNLI produces some useful safety information for kayakers. Sea kayaking is a potentially hazardous pursuit, partly because of the nature of the environment in which we operate. Safer sea-kayaking is a consequence of appropriate coaching and knowledge. To receive suitable training join an appropriate local club or contact a commercial centre.
