You should have some previous kayaking experience and basic boat handling skills is a big advantage. It is important that you are confident/comfortable in the water and can swim in a buoyancy aid.
This course is run in our state of the art rolling pool. We will start with the fundamentals and over the course of the day will help you to develop these foundation skills into a reliable roll that you can count on.
Skills covered will include boat set up, core strength, edge control, support strokes and the Eskimo roll.
Watch this short video clip of Oisin showing us how it’s done.
This course is not designed for beginners but for those wishing to learn how to roll a kayak. For those interested in progressing down the road to independent paddling the Eskimo roll is a big step on this journey.
All technical equipment will be supplied by Tollymore so all you will need is swimsuit, towel, toiletries, goggles and nose clip (if you have them).
The course fee includes all technical equipment, coaching and a packed lunch. You can fill a flask with tea or coffee at the Centre if required.
Your course is a one day course, so accommodation is not provided. However, we do have changing rooms, showers and lockers available for your use.
We can offer you a nights’ accommodation and breakfast either at the beginning or end of a course for an extra £26.50 per person. This is a great way to further enhance your time at Tollymore and savour the beautiful majestic setting that the Centre has to offer.

As you are probably aware the current advice from the Northern Ireland Executive, Health Promotion Agency NI and Health & Safety Executive NI, as well as our expert group within Sport NI is that we cannot deliver any face to face courses for our customers including use of the Hot Rock Climbing Wall.
We know that you and many others like minded folk are very keen to get back on track with your plans to attend and complete a range of personal skills training and qualifications in a range of disciplines.
Believe us when we say we are equally keen to get outside with you and help you reach your goals and complete that journey.
How do we know? Because every day we get emails and phone calls asking when will courses resume and with every NI Executive mention of easing of restrictions the emails and phone calls are more frequent……
