What will you learn?

Taster Session content

Taster sessions contain an introduction to paddling along with working on your team work skills. These are put the test with races and games.

Session recommendations

Katakanuing can be an evening activity or part of a multi-activity day.

We can accommodate 30 people in one session.

Katakanuing works well combined with dragon boating or wobbleboarding.

If your group is made up of people less than 9 years old it can be helpful to put an older person or helper in each boat.
