A long experience dating back to 1994 (year Sea Kayak Italy was founded), allows us to offer our pupils guaranties of excellent results in a very short time. Our courses are formulated in such a way that lets our pupils approach sea kayaking in a stress free environment. Our instructors all have long didactic and navigational experience, as well as a passion for kayaking, nature and the sea.

The approach of more complicated maneuvers comes progressively and in a relaxed atmosphere. Each instructor being responsible for a maximum of 5 pupils. This choice allows us to offer maximum attention to our students and to follow their individual progress.
