Where Are We

We are completely immersed in nature here on our peninsula in Studland on the Jurassic Coast in Dorset, watching our heath, shoreline and woodland change throughout the seasons is a constant source of inspiration for us.

Sea Kayaking Courses & Tuition Reviews

Lovely location for the course. All information was provided that was needed. And James was a brilliant coach. I would recommend you to anyone.

I live in Weymouth and do a lot of water sports. The Fore Adventure kayak trip to Old Harry was exceptional. John really knows his stuff - he looked after all the members of the expedition, showed us the sea life round Old Harry, was thoughtful, intelligent and really good fun. And the safety features were meticulous - checking the weather before we left, notifying the coastguard before and after the trip, carrying a VHF transmitter and mobile phone, safety drill, equipment.

Fantastic experience kayaking out to Old Harry Rocks, would really recommend this activity. Instructors made sure we felt really confident despite not having done much kayaking before myself. Amazing sites and to pull up on the beach underneath the rocks is something not many people will get to do. Exciting trip back going round the headlands against the waves but nothing most people wouldn't be able to cope with and the leaders were really good at making sure everyone was ok. Would love to do this again sometime.

Ideal for beginners, our half day sea kayak tuition course takes place in Studland at Old Harry Rocks, we focus on a whole host of skills such as boat handling, personal paddling skills, basic safety and rescue and wet exits.

Join  us on our sea kayaking courses to learn to sea kayak. We will teach you all you need to know to start your journey in sea  kayaking, starting off with boat handling and water safety before setting off to explore  caves, arches and secret beaches. These introductory courses are perfect for complete beginners and a great way into the sport.

If  you’re lucky you will spot Dolphins, seals and incredible marine and  bird life. Our location in Studland in Dorset is the most incredible setting for kayaking and Old Harry Rocks provides the perfect playground, our fully qualified staff have years of experience out on the sea and will teach you everything they know to help you progress quickly to develop your sea kayaking skills and knowledge to start  taking journeys by sea kayak on your own.

We  supply all of the equipment you need, and have warm wetsuits and jackets to keep you dry and snug on the sea.

These trips run from April till the end of October.  If it’s a full day you are looking for or a multi day expedition we travel beyond Old Harry Rocks round to Swanage and further along the Jurassic coastline or explore the channels, creeks and islands of stunning Poole harbour on our full intermediate or advanced sea kayaking days priced at £110pp. min age 18+

  • Unless we tell you something else all of our sea kayaking sessions run from our Hutquarters on Middle beach in Studland, if this trip will be running in the harbour you will be notified where to meet in advance, but it will start on the studland side of the harbour.
  • Please arrive at our base in the car park 10 minutes before your adventure begins to ensure a savvy start as we unfortunately we can’t hold the session if you are late
  • You will need to be ready in your swimwear for a swift change into wetsuits.
  • After a quick change you will make your way down to our beach hut down on the beach.
  • After a short safety briefing you will kayak out to explore the majestic Old Harry Rocks. We hug the coastline and stay in mostly shallow water all the way. At Old Harry we enter deeper water and explore the cliffs and sea stacks further.
  • This trip is on single closed cockpit kayaks.
  • You will need to bring footwear (old trainers or aqua shoes do just the job)
  • You will need to wear your swimming cossie or shorts underneath our wetsuits. Make sure you bring sunglasses, sunscreen, a change of clothes, a towel and a water bottle to stay hydrated.
  • In winter you will need to wear a base layer under our wetsuit (man made fabric as cotton will retain water). Hats and gloves are a good idea too, as well as a snug fleece and some warm socks for afterwards!
