This course is for packrafters who are looking to start undertaking safe and enjoyable coastal journeys.

However, it can also be exposed and unforgiving without the right planning, preparation and skills.
This course is all about arming you with the necessary knowledge of the environment so you can start developing your ability to make safe and appropriate decisions. Enabling you to have a memorable adventure, rather than an epic you’d rather forget!

- Safety and rescue and towing skills
- Personal clothing and equipment
- VHF Radios and PLB’s
…everything you need to be comfortable in the coastal environment.
The journey will also include an overnight wild camp. Thus maximising your learning on the water whilst enjoying being in such a special part of the world.
